CRM CAL license user or device? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If CRM device CAL licenses have been purchased (Dynamics CRM - Full Use Additive Device CAL), does that mean that the User needs an additional device licence when he or she accesses the CRM server from a different device?

    How does that work with a Remote Desktop Server / Terminal Server? Does a Remote Desktop Server need one (?) additional CRM Device CAL per server?

  • Hi,

    If you purchased device cal means you can access only in that device not apart from that device, any user can work CRM on that device.

    I think it will work in remote desktop server too becuase you got device CAL license right, so only that system taking in remote.

  • What about accessing CRM through http from a tablet or smartphone, these then also need an additional device license.

    If that is the case, we have been offered and have purchased the wrong CAL licence type.

  • Hi,

    You cant able to access CRM through in tablet or smartphone because you have purchased device license, i think you can able to upgrade the device CAL to user CAL.

    There is another option using mobile express you can able to access CRM in tablet and smartphone. I am not sure about license for mobile express.

    Thanks & Regards, MS CRM Consultant, V.Surya.
