User/Admin CALs in SBS 2003
Posted on 2008-06-24
If I understand correctly, administrative accounts under SBS 2003 do not require a CAL. Is that correct? Is that enough for an account to be in Admin group or it need to be in Admin group only - that is excluded from User groups? I have 10 non-administrative accounts that login regularly and several admin accounts that are used by services (BackupExec, Blackberry Enterprise Server, etc.), yet SBS claims I have 12 licenses in use. Is there a way to find out how that is calculated? For me this is a difference between fixing a glitch (if there is a fix...) or getting another 5pack CALs. Thanks!!!
P.S. I also have one non-admin account that never used and disabled Guest account. Does it make a difference? Is CAL taking when an account is authenticated or as long as account is there i need a license? Thanks!!!
