TS licensing...general questions...
Posted on 2004-08-18
On Windows Server 2003 Standard edition (not SBS), I have the need to run terminal services. I have purchased 3 Terminal Services CALs. If I install them on the server, I'm being asked whether they are Per User or Per Device.
1) If I select per device, is a license related to a specific device? For example, I've got 3 license. Computer1 connects to TS (via web, rdp, whatever), and gets a license. If computer1 never again connected to the TS, do I still have 3 licenses available or is that one license computer1 received associated only with it (leaving me with only 2 licenses available)?
2) if I select per user, just like question 1 above, and user1 logs in, do I only have 2 other users that could ever receive a license?
Thanks for you help.
