    licensing question

    We are adding a 2008 SIMS server to our 2003 domain, the new server will sit in the domain but only 3 clients will access it.

    I know we will require SQL CALS for the clients i.e x 3. I presume that I only need 3 CALs for 2008 but have been advised that I will need 2008 CALs for all stations in the domain is this correct?

    thanks in advance
    paul

    If only three machines are going to access the server then you only need 3 device CALs.

    You will only need the 3 cals but remember if you promote it to a DC then you will need full cals

    Are you running the full blown sql server as sims can be installed with the lite version
