[windows2000] Re: SQL CAL Purchase

SQL 2005 has switched that.

There are now three options:

1. Per Processor on the server that will run SQL
2. Per User, no matter what device they used
3. Per Device, no matter what user.

The example that they give is a call center, where there are three
shifts of 100 employee each, but only 100 total computers... You can buy
100 Per Device CALs in that situation, instead of 300 Per User CALs.

I have a feeling that if I call and ask, they are going to tell me that
each of my Neoware Capios is a device, rather than every terminal
server... :-(

Last time I checked, you had to have a client license for EVERY user
connecting to SQL - Richard

The most expensive option (whatever that turns out to be) will be the
one you need. I've a feeling you need to buy a cut diamond with every
MSSQL CAL on TS nowadays.

Subject: [windows2000] SQL CAL Purchase


Does anyone know the answer to this:

I am going to be upgrading my SQL 7 server to SQL 2005.

90% of my users are terminal server users.

Can I buy one "Per Device" SQL CAL for each of the terminal servers, and
everyone on that server can connect?  That doesn't seem right, but all
the users are on the same "Device"...

TIA,
