Hi there,

On a Windows Server 2003 or 2008 domain, If I have 10 people using 5 PCs, all logging in with a same generic username (for example: shipping), would that require 1, 5 OR 10 USER CALs?

Please provide a straight answer with a reference URL.

Thanks,
Rene

It is concurrent users for Windows CAL's.  5 users the same time = 5 user CAL's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Client_Access_License#Client_Access_Licenses

Based on this link, in your situation 5 Device CALs would make sense.
