Primary Domain Controller and Windows CALs???

Can a Windows Server 2003 with 5 CALs serve as the primary domain controller for a network of ~80 PCs?  Or do I need to purchase 80 CALs?  

1 Solution
You need 1 CAL/user or PC.  It will not block the users, but will complain in the event log about extra users.
