Hi,

We are currently experimenting with My sql database running on a Windows server 2008 r2 64bit server not running in a domain. Would we need to purchase microsoft cals to access the my sql database for each workstation?

Hope someone can help

Thanks Lee

You should probably check with whomever sells  you your licenses but the way I read Microsoft's terms you would need to license each user or device separately, unless you were licensing by server.

See http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/client-licensing.aspx
