How does Windows SBS 2003 Premium count license access?
Posted on 2007-08-10
I am a newb to network administration (though I've been a .NET and SQL dev for several years) and am trying to simply figure out how Windows counts the usage of available User CALs. Our company has about 45 users set up in our Active Directory, however at any given time of the day, perhaps only 25-30 users will be connected to our domain simultaneously, via VPN or locally. Currently, we have 30 CALs on our SBS server.
So my question is: does Windows count the number of individual users that have logged into the system since the server was last restarted, or does it track only number of currently logged in users at any point in time to see if the max usage has exceed the number of CALs available?
