My company is planning to purchase SQL server to support a time and attendance program that they are also going to buy. HR says that they will need 10 people to be able to access the T&A program
I am confused about the new Licensing types for SQL Server 2000. I have read the FAQ at Microsoft outlining the differences and uses of each License type but I'm confused at how SQL server knows whether a connection is coming from a "licensed user" or a "licensed device". If I get 10 "user" licenses does that mean that only 10 specific users could have access and that we are stuck with only those ten users being able to access the db? Or if I get 10 "device" licenses does that mean that only 10 specific desktops could access the db? Could I transfer the licesnse to another Client device?
In truth, I am going to try and get the company to buy a processor license but they may balk at the additional cost and then I'll have to figure out what kind of licenses to buy.
Thanks for any insight you can give me.
