If I upgrade Dynamics Workgroup server to CRM server, do I obtain 5 CALs or do I need to purchase them from user 1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just trying to understand the licensing scheme.

    If we purchased the Workgroup server which has a maximum of 5 users, then upgrade it to the CRM server which has unlimited users, do we lose the licensing for the 5 users until we purchase 5 CALs?

  • No you don't loose anything. The 5 original license are still valid. You just then buy professional server cals for each new user after your first 5.

    The license renewals get very complex since in future years they still show the workgroup and then upgrade. So you will see many line items going forward.

    But note that while professional has unlimited cals you still need to buy individuals cals for users 6 through N.
