Windows Server 2003 licensing question - CALs
Posted on 2011-02-26
I just took over six Windows 2003 Server boxes and have a question about licensing.
We have two boxes that are running as Domain Controllers, DHCP, and DNS. Two servers running as file servers. One server running as a TS server. One server running as an "update" server for our AV solution.
I'm assuming we should have one user CAL for each AD user. What I'm not sure of is do we need one user CAL per user for the entire domain, or one CAL for each user per machine?
For example, we have 30 users and they all access all six machines in some way or another. So we need only 30 CAL licenses for the domain or do we need 180 CALs (30 users accessing 6 different servers).
Any help is appreciated.
