CAL Licensing - Windows XP/Server 2003 Network
Posted on 2006-07-05
I have a new shop opening soon which consists of 16 Windows XP Professional (oem) Workstations & 1 Windows 2003 Server (Standard Edition). There are 2 Multi-Funtion (print,scan,fax) Network Printers.
I will use Terminal Services on the server for remote administration.
Could you please shed some light to the matter of Microsoft Licensing, MS Open Licensing, CALs
How many CALs would I need etc if I purchase the systems with WinXP Pro OEM?
Ideally I would like to join this server to more branches via VPN with replication with other Windows 2003 Servers (standard edition) in the future. Would this consist of a much larger licensing project/change of Server OS? when the time comes?
Thanks in advance
