What is the difference of selecting per server or per seat. I bought the extra 5 users pack and I was wondering how should I proceed.

Thanks

Per server - only the number of licences connections (so 15, I guess in your case) can be made to the server concurently max. Once all the server licences are taken no more connections can be made to the server with out connection being dropped.

Per seat - Each machine is assigned a license, but the server can have as many connection as it cope with.

I'd suggest you go with per seat. It saves problems down the line if you intend to grow in size.

BTW What90...  did you notice that MS has changed the terminology of their Per Seat licensing..??  It is now called Per User/Per Device...

Per User/Per Device mode tends to be the most economical designation for Windows CALs in distributed computing environments where multiple servers within an organization provide services across most devices or users.

Note that Per User/Per Device mode replaces Per Seat mode, used in previous licensing models.
