Volume Licensing 2.0 for Vista and Windows Server 2008

Here is some links on Volume Licensing 2.0.  If you are going to implement Windows Server 2008 into your environment.  Plan on spending a couple of days understanding the concepts.  Note, the KMS stuff is built into Windows Server 2008, so you don’t have to add it like you did in Windows Server 2003.
