Windows Server 2003 5 CAL Licence. ?

Does anyone know if a windows server 2003 5 cal licences allows you to install the server on 5 pc's. Microsoft want me to pay them to answer this question CLEARLY. wiki and other including microsoft make this very muddy. go figure. Thanks. Cheers, that clears it up. I was unsure what was meant by devices. Its clear now that its another limitation placed on business users but thats just my opinion.


No, those licenses are to allow 5 clients to connect (terminal services or RDP) to the server. It stands for Client Access License (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Client_Acce ss_License)

No. Five CALs are client access licenses. That means you can have five users connected to the server at one time. You can only install it on one machine.

No, 5 CAL means that it will only allow you to connect 5 computers to your server and use it's software at any 1 time.
YanalRahim | Nov 23, 2009
I am not sure, but no, you can't install the server on 5 pc's...you can only use the cal for 5 pc's, the cal license is something different that the server license.

What is supposed to be provided with MS Server CAL's?

My boss bought "Microsoft 5-Devise CAL Client Access License for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard or Enterprise 32/64 BIT (No Media or Keycode) " from a company called Trustprice in CA. When he tried to install is it asks for a 25 character license code which was not provided. All I have is a Windows Server "Getting Started" Guide, a Microsoft Software License Terms pamphlet and a sheet that tells me I have 5 CAL's......


Check his e-mail. He should have been sent a document from Microsoft with a License Number and an authorization number. Then you would go to https://eopen.microsoft.com, log-in, enter that information in the appropriate location, and get your 25 character license key.

he should have been provided the license code for the additional CALs.

In addition, the MCSA (Microsoft Certified System Administrator) certification will expand its program to include an additional upgrade exam for MCSAs wanting to become MCSEs.

    SBS 2011 Standard is Excellent for the Price

    Well, I bought SBS 2011 on release day last year. (2011) Boy, probably the greatest purchase ever. For $700 you get Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, and Server 2008R2. Why did I choose this product over Server 2008R2? The number one reason is the ease of use. I noticed the other reviewer said he had major problems with it. You have to have some idea of what you're doing and if you follow the wizards exactly, you should have no problems. If you need something simple to configure and have no need for SharePoint or Exchange, get SBS 2011 Essentials. Some "hidden" charges you'll want to keep in mind for full use is the price of a domain name and an SSL Certificate. You can get a domain name for as little as 2 bucks a year (.info). I personally went with a .org domain name. ($14/year on GoDaddy) The SSL Certificate is also about $50 a year. This should be a no brainer for small businesses. It gives the appearance of being a large corporation and is pretty secure. Buying Exchange and... 5/5 Sandeep S. Luthra - See all my reviews, May 23, 2012

This review is from: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard [Old Version] (CD-ROM) A great improvement over Windows SBS 2008. 2011 gives you additional features in the Web portal remote console in addition to speed. Very stable, we use for several of our clients. If you do migrate from Windows 2003, make sure it does not have corruptions in the system otherwise be prepared to do a clean install and migrate the exchange mailboxes and data files only.Update- any questions please ask me like Jack did below in comments. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 30, 2011
