Window Server CALs
If the workstations in your organization are networked, you likely depend on network server software to perform certain functions, such as file and print sharing. To legally access this server software, a Client Access License, or CAL, may be required. A CAL is not a software product; rather, it is a license that gives a user the right to access the services of the server.
1. What is the difference between a Server license and a CAL? Why do I need both? The Server license gives the license holder the right to install and use the server software. the CAL grants the right for a device or user to access the server software. This offers license affordability to organizations of all sizes.
2. When do I need to aquire a CAL? A CAL is required when a user or device accesses or uses the server software. If access is through the Internet and is unauthenticated (as at a public website), a CAL is not required.
3. Are the five CALs that come with my purchase of Windows Server 2008 Standard edition per user or per device? the five CALs that come with the purchase of Windows Server 2008 Standard may be designated for either user or device. Any additional CALs acquired afterward are bought as either user or device CALs.
4. Can I use a device CAL and a user CAL to access the same server? Yes. Device and user CALs, as well as Remote Desktop Services device and user CALs, can be used to access the same server.
5. Is each CAL "tied" to a specific user or device? Yes. Cals must be assigned to specific users or devices. If a user leaves the company or a device is retired, the CAL can be reassigned.
6. I have some extra CALs from an older version that are not being used. Can I apply these to the servers running a newer version? No. CALs must be the same version as - or a more recent version of - the server software they are accessing.
- A server CAL (Client Access License) is a required license that gives the right to access services from Microsoft server software. Every user or device that accesses or uses the server software requires the purchase of a Windows Server CAL.
- A Device CAL is a license to access a device connected to a server, regardless of the number of users of the device.
- Device CALs are ideal for customers with multiple users for one device, such as shift workers.
