We're just now in the process of moving everything from our production box to a
development box for Y2K testing.  We, too, were concerned about licenses, but
found that vendors (including SSA!) were most co-operative in giving us a
temporary license on the development box.  We are using a third party product
with 4.0.5, rather than 4.0.5CD, and plan on changing the system date as a
final test.  We've heard everything from "What's the big deal?" to "Don't
change the system date even on a development box ... period!"  Anybody who's
done it have an opinion?
