    oops, missed that one. Trying to move away from MS as much as possible these days. There will still be some licences required obviously, so maybe I will take a look at Insight.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    With TME we paid:

    Windows: 10.52ea
    Office Ent: 14.13ea
    Windows CALs: 1.23ea
    Encarta Ref: 2.55ea
    Server: 22.06ea
    ISA: 56.42ea

    For 183 clients, 5 servers and 1 ISA. This was better than any other price we were given too.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    @timbo: Are purchasing these licences outright or are you leasing them??

    We lease ours under a schools agreement and last year paid £8k for coverage of 450 desktops / laptops (XP, Office 2003), 8 Windows Servers (2003 R2), SQL Server, Exchange Server, and CALS to access these along with TS CALS (150).

    We have over 600 desktops in total but the others are covered under OEM licences.

    we are leasing them, i think. We have to keep buying them every year, so the license cost goes up as more and more machines join our network.

    From what I've been told by our suppliers and confirmed by a Microsoft Rep, you are not licensing correctly. To use a schools agreement, you have to buy licenses for all desktops that are used in the school. All your desktops must be licensed by OEM as the schools agreement requires a valid windows license of some form for each machine before it can be used on machines.

    We don't use the schools agreement here, we buy licences as required. The only thing we have to pay out for each year is our subscription advantage for Citrix, normally around £2,500 & server support contract.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    Ok, but how are the other ones covered? The schools agreement is supposed to be used to cover all clients, not a pick and choose.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    You have to license every qualifying machine on site. This includes Macs and virtually anything else above a 386 weather it runs windows or not. That is why I tend to remove very old, stand alone machines.

    Re: Microsoft Volume Licensing - who?

    You stated that you have 600 machines, of which 450 are covered by the Schools agreement. This isn't allowed - they have to all be covered by the schools agreement. What are the other 150 machines?
