We have a deployment containing a number of computers that are used by shift workers, and so have chosen to use Microsoft device CALs rather than user CALs. However, rather than just counting the number of users, we now need to count devices and it's unclear which devices require device CALs. It's obvious that the computers do, but what about:
- Printers (including multi-function models)
- Switches (including smart switches)
- Routers (that may authenticate VPN users against the Active Directory)
- Wireless access points (that authenticate users against the AD)
How can we determine whether CALs are required for these devices?
