Help with CALs and MS licensing
Posted on 2008-11-05
OK - this is kind of a silly question - but I'm just getting the feel for the MS Server OS licensing model:
if Im building 2 servers: one of which will be the PDC / File server and the other will be the Exchange server&(Assuming that i'm loading 2003 versions of both) does the Exchange server need to have Server 2003 running on it as well?, or will the Exchange server software load on the box as a stand-alone app that will see the 2003 server&Im guessing the Exchange Server needs its own 2003 server OS as well correct?
(Assume a 60 user installation) So in essence, for the 2 servers: will I be buying 2 copies of MS Server 2003 (one for each box, with 60 CALs each?), and Exchange server 2003 (with it's own 60 CALS?)
