Hello
I have a user who wants to purchase a server for file storage and they also want Exchange.
So I am recommending SBS 2011 with Exchange.

Now here's the strange part.  they do not have any 'Pro' computers.   For example, they do not have any computers that are running WIndows 7 Pro or XP Pro or 8 Pro; they are all Home editions.

If this is the case, do I still need  User CALS for the SBS users?

Thanks

You won't be able to use all the facilities of SBS server unless you have 'pro' clients who can join the domain - without this you might a well just use another desktop machine as a file server.

You DO need CALs - they are RIGHTS to access the server, regardless of how or where from.
