Hello, I'm about to purchase a new server 2012 box and run a SQL application off of it. Users will be accessing it via portal for time entry. My question is, do I need to buy SQL CALs and server 2012 user CALs, or just the SQL CALs? I'm a little confused and just want to make sure I'm purchasing the right licensing. Thank you!
You must buy OS and SQL CALs if you choose to use per user or per device licensing.

With rare exception (if any exception) CALs are ADDITIVE. So a SQL CAL adds the right to access a SQL server to a standard Windows Server CAL.
Ended up just contacting MS to get it straightened out.
