License Conversion

Is there a way to take a Network License for a purchased product and convert it to a Standalone License? we have Server 2003 hosting a NLM and we are forced to upgrade our existing server to Server 2008... and we would like to transfer/convert this to a single computer for a single user.

Contact your reseller and know that you are giving up a more expensive solution so don't just do this for nothing.

IOW - if you were to go from standalone to network, it would set you back an extra grand or so.

RK is right.  You don't really want to do this.  Just have the user borrow a license (up to 6 months) and then that will give you time to migrate the server and update the license manager accordingly.  That's probably your best bet.
