If I purchase Server ESSENTIALS 2012 R2 (which includes 25 CAL’s but you can’t purchase them separately or go beyond 25) can I install SQL STANDARD on it?  I have been getting contrary information—some saying that you can’t because there are really no CAL’s on Server Essentials and some saying that you can as long as you limit users to 25 and purchase SQL CAL’s.
