"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Who knows.  You haven't specified how many USERS there are - THAT'S what matters!

100 USERS per above #4

That wasn't a user count - that was a CAL count.

You also haven't specified (in this question) how many of your users need to access aspects of RMS or how man RDS users you have.

Remember, Microsoft licenses to the USER - the HUMAN BEING.  It doesn't matter how many hyper-V servers you have or DCs or file servers, or how many Core CALs - what matters is HOW MANY HUMAN BEINGS will be using those services.  EACH ONE needs a CAL.

Correct, I am just wanting some type of way to find out how many Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CALS and Active Directory Rights Management Services (RMS) CALS are on a server we just acquired during a company purchase that has NO associated paperwork.

Any ideas on how I can find this by RDPing into the server ?
Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
CALs are not "installed", they are documented.  If you didn't get any documented CALs then you effectively don't have them.  An audit will want proof you have them - you have to present proof of purchase.  Not sure if what you got counts?  Refer to my disclaimer - call Microsoft.
