Does on-premise CRM 2013 not check CAL license limits and types? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working on a CRM project for a client setting up some customisations and reworking their processes, and when I got to setting up some new custom security roles, the subject came up as to the number of licences they had, and it turns out they have quite a few more active users tan purchased licenses.

    How can this be?? Does CRM 2013 on-premise not check the number of licenced CALs against the number of end users?

    Also many of their licences were of the Essential type, but they had access to areas they theoretically should not be able to access (access levels explained here: www .force works.com/cost-dynamics-crm-2013-go  ), such as creating Oportunities, creating Leads, converting Leads to Oportunities, etc. I had to try this myself with an Essential user, and I can confirm this is so.

    I'm quite confused by MS's licencing model for CRM.

    Can someone from MS explain what is going on?
