A friend of mine gave me some old servers, and MSDN CD's from his paid for subscription years ago.

I have only ever used for testing, and always rebuilding/starting from scratch as you do when things go wrong.

Am i allowed to still use, i suspect the subscription has expired, and the OS im using are 2008 so old.

Also If i was to sell on the server to a trainee for learning purposes, is this ok, or best just not including the MSDN software.

Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) was the division of Microsoft responsible for managing the firm's relationship with developers and testers, such as hardware developers interested in the operating system (OS), and software developers developing on the various OS platforms or using the API
As an example, MSDN regularly includes the latest Windows operating systems (such as Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1), server software such as SQL Server 2008, development tools such as Visual Studio, and applications like Microsoft Office and MapPoint.

MSDN's primary web presence at is a collection of sites for the developer community that provide information, documentation, and discussion that is authored both by Microsoft and by the community at large. Recently, Microsoft has placed emphasis on incorporation of forums, blogs, library annotations and social bookmarking to make MSDN an open dialog with the developer community rather than a one-way service. The main website, and most of its constituent applications below are available in 56 or more languages.

As you have mentioned you have an old servier i suggest you to stay uptodate with the technology and sell the server and get an virtual server. This will save your time and cost to a great extent. I know an Virtual Server Hosting Provider who offers quality services do visit the website for more information.
