Microsoft Server 2012 CALS
Posted on 2013-12-10
I know this question has been asked before in a round about way, but I'm unable to find an up to date answer. Please bear with me.
I have a question with licensing Windows Server 2012 for a new company.
They have 2 file servers and a Domain controller, and they want to run Server 2012 Standard on them.
They have 70 users. After buying the server software CAL for each, which I understand must be done, Can I then buy 70 USER CALS for Server 2012, and then they can access the resources on the 2 file servers and any other services on the Domain controller?
Do I need to buy 210 CALS and then put 70 on each server?
Is there any hard limits on 2012 Server if we reach that point? Will it kick off my users?
Thanks for your input and patience.
