I'm not a DB admin...
We purchased the following for a new SQL server we built recently for a group of external DBA's we recently contracted. The following sit on a Win2012 standard server.
SQLSvrStdCore 2012 SNGL OLP 2Lic NL CoreLic
WinSvrStd 2012 SNGL OLP NL 2Proc
WinSvrCAL 2012 SNGL OLP NL UsrCAL
SQL was installed on the server and turned over to the DBA's to setup the SQL end. SQL server management studio is installed on their laptops, so they can connect to the SQL Server.
Here's where I get a confused....I was told to 'Install server based license' on their laptops and make sure they can create a query and link to tables.
What could possibly need to be installed locally other than the 'SQL server manangement studio? What type of local install on the laptops could they be talking about? They say they don't want a DB on the laptop, so that can't be it.
