Do stand-alone devices such as net printers need licenses on a Server 2003 domain?

Hello,

We have a client who owns a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server SBS machine and are having some issues in terms of licensing on the domain. IN particular, we are wondering if non-human operated devices, such as printers, are in need of licenses? We are having some strange issues on this domain and are wondering if one or two of our network printers are being seen as clients on the domain and the 2003 Server may be locking others out from access on the server.

No, CAL's (CLIENT access licences) are only needed for the CLIENT.

What issues are you having.

You can also check your licence usage from the server management console, it will tell you your installed licences, currently used licences, and maximum used licences.
