First deployment of a MS Server 2016 Standard. The client purchased 3 "Windows Server 2016 CAL 5 Device" with their server. I tried like crazy to locate the licensing manager or even add the role but I am not able to determine if these are pre-installed in some manner or if they are needing to be entered like previously. These are NOT RDP CALs, just users.
If pre-installed, the system had to be formatted because a Windows Update error-ed out and jacked up the OS so they clean installed the OS prior to having me set up the Hyper-V, etc. Did the reformat wipe the licenses or is there some way for me to check?
Lastly, if I have to install them somehow, they should still be on the Host since that is the DC and the VM is file sharing right?
