We have an SQL server running and SQL app that I need to replace with a newer server. I didn't install the last one and don't know much about SQL licensing. The vendor says the app will run on SQL 2012 but in getting into specing out a new server I see listings for not only Windows user CALS (client access licenses) but also SQL CALS. Do I need these as well for users to be able to access this app?
