Microsoft SQL Server 2008 STD - madatory user CAL in order to login?
Posted on 2010-09-21
I need to quickly setup a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 STD, but the user count is still uncertain.
Will I be able to install the MS SQL 2008 Server without purchasing the user CAL?
I know this may not be in legal compliance but then I need to setup the server first and strictly speaking it will not be in production till maybe one month later, during which I will have time to purchase the correct number of SQL user CAL.
So is the SQL user CAL like the Terminal Server CAL - hard requirement - no CAL no login?
