I have a question about licensing Microsoft software.
In my company I have 3 servers running Windows 2003
- Exchange Server
- Terminal Services Server
- Domain Controller
I also have about 30 workstations running Windows XP.
Now if I understand MS licensing correctly I need to have 3 Windows 2003 Server Standard licenses for these. On top of that I need my server license for exchange as well as my 30 CALs for Exchange. I also need 30 Terminal Server CALs. Do I need anything else? Do I need Windows 2003 Server CALs? If so which option is better for my environment: Per Sear or Per Server.
Someone told me if I chose per seat and purchased the appropriate CALs then I wouldn't need 3 Windows 2003 Server Standard licenses but I don't think that is accurate. This whole thing has my head spinning.
