Exchange 2010 and Terminal Server 2008 Licensing

Hey Everyone -

There's curently an office of 6 users I'm currently building a server for. Because they keep their Exchange Services in-house but would also like to implement Terminal services as well, I've configured Server 2008 Std, with Exchange 2010 and TS 2008.

One question that's come up is the role of the 6th person. They currently only use her for about 2 months once a year for overflow work when's she's out of school.  I've asked if they plan on expanding any time soon and they said they'd probably shrink before they grew.

My problem is with licensing. With 5 CALS coming with each of these applications does any of these titles restrict users at the local (server) level like SBS 2003 would do? I normally am very good with licensing when it comes to purchasing, but with a situation like this it seems like any more cals wouldnt be needed, if it's just for records/auditing.

Am I missing anything?

Hello,

The only product that will enforce the numbers of CALs is Terminal Services. You will need to install a CAL for each user that will connect. If you have six users and only install five CALs, the sixth user won't be able to connect.
