should be a simple question, but i cant find a definite....

we have a 10user Dell SBS 2011 server and need to purchase more CALS for new staff, so another 5 block will be fine.  am i 'locked' to purchasing Dell branded 5 user cal for circa £250 from dell, or can i use microsoft ones from ebuyer at about £190.

We know these cals are not installed onto the server and are only bits of paper really - does it actually matter where they come from?

You are not locked into the Dell-sold CALs with SBS.

Do you have the Microsoft Part number for the ebuyer site? I can help you determine whether or not this is appropriate for your configuration.

no its not a problem re the part number we have enough customers on standard Microsoft boxes and it was just this dell that was slightly concerning me with licensing
