SQL licensing

Hi

 

If the BES10 DB is on a SQL server and it's a User CAL model for licensing, do we need a CAL per device for SQL or one CAL for the BB user?

Re: SQL licensing

you should only need one CAL for the BESAdmin account as the users dont access SQL

 

Microsoft says indirect access needs a CAL which is their way of saying anything that uses it needs a CAL.

 

since on BES 10 the SQL database isnt used as hard as BES 5 the SQL express thats bunddled with it might be enough for you

Re: SQL licensing

Thanks

 

Yes, i know about the SQL express but with 1500 users I think SQL is a better option.

 

Cheers

Re: SQL licensing

yes full SQL would be better for that

 

I called MS before and they said you need a CAL per user on BES 5

 

Do you have any per core or socket  SQL servers running?

you could add in an instance to one of those if you do

BES 10 isnt that hard on SQL

Re: SQL licensing

Believe it or not we have 30 something SQL servers. I need to find someone who'll let me have an instance!
