licensing question for windows server and terminal server
Posted on 2006-07-21
I'm installing 2 new W2k3 servers ... server "A" will be the Domain controller, and have 15 employees (devices) logging in via the LAN. There are 2 network printers.
I'm also installing another W2k3 server, server "B". It will be dedicated as a terminal services server, and have up to 25 simultaneous connections coming in from the outside. It will be the same 25 sites (devices), over and over. The remote users will run an app which resides on server A; I'm going to do a 'workstation install' of the app on the SERVER B.
Do I need 18 CALs on server A, and 26 cals for server B? When people remote into SERVER B, do they need to authenticate to SERVER A. Do they need an available license on SERVER A also, or instead? Licensing always gives me a headache.
