What happened to SBS 2003 R2 + Software Assurance?

Where did it go? it was removed from Volume License pricelists?

Well, Eric Ligman has a final solution for you over on his blog. The key piece being:

If you are looking to get your clients an SBS 2003 R2 Server license with Software Assurance, here is what you should do:

  1. Purchase a Retail Box SBS 2003 R2 Server license from your distributor
  2. Add Software Assurance to it within 90 days of the purchase (best off to do it on the same order to make sure you get it added)
  3. Follow the steps to claim the SBS 2003 R2 deployment rebate for your client
