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.

there is nothing required on  thier laptops apart from SSMS as you figured out..
but if they are complaining about getting SSMS, ask them to download the express edition.

I thought so, but the Consultants boss insisted they needed 'server based licenses' on the local machine. I can't talk to him directly, so i'm getting this from my Boss. She took notes in the meeting and wrote down 'Server based licenses'

Thanks
