Ok, here is the deal. we have SQL 2008 up and runnnig great. We purchased 1 License for 2008 SQL Standard and 10 CAL's. My quesiton is what software do you install on the client machines to connect and work from the SQL 2008 Server over the network? What about reporting services also? the only way to connect remotely without RDP'ing in the server is to install the full CD of SQL (on the client XP box) to get all of the client connection tools. The only thing is that I do not want SQL server services running on the client computers, also if I do it this way, is it a license violation but installing full version on clent machine so we can connect to the database over the network with reporting services also. Hopefull this isn't too confusing.
thanks in advance.
