Windows Cal question
Posted on 2016-10-11
I asked my boss this morning about moving some of our production servers to windows 2012 for example as a starter our AV server Kaspersky runs on windows 2008 and SQL express 08. SQL Express 2016 will not run on windows 2008 so this is what prompted the question, he said no because we need to upgrade our CALs to support windows 2012.
Why would we need to upgrade our CALs just to run a windows 2012 av server with sql express? Only workstations and terminal servers will be connecting for av def updates and application whitelisting.
