We are installing a 2012 Standard Server. Here is an example of what we have. It's not really our environment, but to keep it simple I provided for the different scenarios.
We have 20 users.
We have 21 computers, including the laptop mentioned below.
1 user has a laptop along with a desktop
1 user uses 2 computers at the same time. The second computer is one that no one else uses.
All users but two have their own computers, They share one computer.
There is also a device that scans and sends the scans to the server. It does so via SMB and has it's own username
Of course licensing would be easy to figure out if there were 20 users and 20 computers.
Just a couple of things that have me confused
1. with the user that is using 2 computers simultaneously, does his single USER CAL cover him?
2. On the scanner, can I have it use the credentials of a user that is covered by a USER CAL and not need a device or user cal for the scanner?
Also, what happens if the licensing isn't correct?
Is there way to see what the server sees as a violation?
Will things continue to work until you can add more licenses?
