    you need both microsoft os licenses and remote desktop licenses to cover,
    if  you will be spinning up a new os image (virtual machine) when the user logs in

    Assisted Solution

    If you are having users to launch a published desktop from a XenApp server, you need RDS/TS CAL's, a server OS license (per server), and Citrix XenApp licensing.

    This will allow you to access the applications from any type of device.

    Accepted Solution

    From a Microsoft perspective you will need the RD-CAL and the VDA license, depending on the nature of your SA agreement, this could already be covered

    hope this helps
