I always get a bit confused with MS licensing.     Here is my scenario:

We have a total of 24 actual PEOPLE.       We run 2 terminal servers that users can access applications.   We have 41 devices that are connected to our network.   29 workstations and 12 thin clients.

I have 40 licenses on open licensing and is listed as OLP SNGL Office STD 2013 NL  VLIC

We have installed Office on both terminal servers that can be accessed by all 24 people.

BUT, some of our departments have office installed locally on their PC so they can use Outlook.  (Long story short, the other users access with thin clients and are older models and we cant run outlook this way)

So are these licenses by device or by user????    If by device, I am one over.   If by user I am fine.

In case it matters, we have 50 device cals and 50 remote desktop device cals
