SQL Server 2012 and how many licenses are needed with IIS
Posted on 2014-03-19
i am totally confused at the moment. We have a CRM-System that is web-based. So 15 USers open a Website, hosted on our local SBS2011 to access and use the crm-system.
This crm connects to local SQL-Server 2012 (express at the moment) with data stored in it.
Because of poor performance the programmer of the crm told us, that we should take the SQL Server 2012 and not the express-version.
So we have the same server machine with SQL, IIS and Server os on it. The only way the SQL is used and accessed is via the iis.
Question: How many SQL-CALs do i need ?
a) 1 Device-CAL for this Server
b) 1 User-CAL for the IIS-User
c) 15 User-CALs for the 15 users that are using the IIS (And SQL behind it ?
Thanks in advance
