SQL server Licensing RRS feed

  • Question


    Ok, this would seem simple... but MS never is on licensing.


    I want to install the archive server, on SQL 2005


    Do i just need 1 SQL licenses? (OCS talking to SQL server)...


    Or do I need a SQL user licenses per each mailbox/user perse   (50 if I have 50 mail boxes?)


    Thanks in Advance,

  • Clients are typically not accessing the database

    It is the Front-End that does the archiving so you need one SQL CAL for evey Front-End server configured for Archiving


    Unless you have admins that query the DB directly for reporting then you don't need other SQL CALs
