Help with SBS 2011 w/Premium Add-On License Requirements
Posted on 2012-03-14
I need help in deciphering the license requirements for an upgrade to a small business network. Currently we use 1 four year old server (Server 2003), 12 computers (variation of XP, Vista and Win7, home and pro versions) and 3 printers running under a workgroup. The server is used for files and as a MS SQL database for law firm software. It’s past time to upgrade/secure the network, server and client computers, plus upgrade to a newer version of the law firm software requiring Sequel 2008,
My plan, as of now, is to purchase a new server with SBS 2011 with the Premium Add-on to use as the DC (once all client computers are off the home versions) and primary file server. The current server will run the Sequel 2008 software dedicated to the law firm software. Am I correct in the number of device licenses of 30, 15 for windows server and 12 (minus the 3 printers) for the Sequel server? Longer term plans will be remote access and exchange, but first things first. Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
