    Multipoint Server

    I have a licencing question about multipoint server.

    I will move to an EES agreement this year. As part of this I will licence 80 Staff and a Windows Multipoint Server (Academic/Premium) which I expect to run 4 Stations from.

    What CAL's will I need if I want to connect them to the domain?

    My assumption is that I will need 1 Multipoint CAL and 1 additional Server 2008 Cal for each Station, however I am getting different messages each time I ring Microsoft!

    1 server CAL and 1 Multipoint CAL for each workstation including the host workstation.

    Having spoken to Microsoft, on an EES agreement i would be expected to purchase 80 user based CAL's for Multipoint Server for 480. However I can buy select, device based CAL's for 25 each (so 100).

    Why is this? Is there anyone out there from Microsoft who can clarify?

    Won't the Server CAL's be included in your agreement? Thus you would just need the multipoint CAL's

    That is how I see it, but I can't seem to be able to get Multipoint Device CALs on my EES agreement, which is just plain annoying!
