    SCCM Licensing Question

    Hello all,

    I have a quick question. We are looking into going the SCCM route and I am looking at pricing.

    We currently have the following license.
    Microsoft Windows Server Device CAL 2008 - license
    under the Microsoft Academic Select Level A agreement.

    From what I am reading on here some of the agreements include licensing for SCCM.

    Does our current license allow for SCCM? I am trying to get a login to our volume license site right now - maybe I can find a better description there. The description above came from our order history on CDWG.

    Your server device CAL only covers the connection to the server by a device. You will also need a SCCM CAL for each device that you want to manage with SCCM.

    Well, still not a bad deal. SCCM CALs are less than $20 so definitely worth it.

    Hi,

    I takes it that you're not on the EES license agreement or microsoft campus agreement. These two (on enteprise pack) does include a SCCM CAL as well as windows server CAL so it may be worth looking into the EES licensing scheme if you qualify for it. I believe EES scheme is available in the states as well.

    EES Core CAL pack on Standard School desktop pack includes the SCCM Client CAL as well.

    thats what I am hearing. Unfortunately it sounds like the directory declined to switch to the schools agreement when our vendor discussed it with her. Oh well. Guess we will have to fork up the cost for the SCCM CALs.
