Your not authenticating against Active Directory of Windows for Serco its authenticating against Serco so its the SQL Licence you need to worry about. I don't have Windows CALs for all my parents that will be using it in Sept, just a Server 2003 license for the box its running on and then the SQL Processor Licence.
    John,

    As I read it, any web site requiring users to log on, running on Windows Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise/Datacenter will need user or device CALs or an External Connector license as they're authenticating. It's the 'through any other means', which includes any form of identification, AD or otherwise.

    ... without being authenticated or otherwise individually identified by the server software or through any other means
    I'm probably getting too obsessed with this.

    Anyway, we now know it'll work on Web Server 2008, which doesn't need CALs under any circumstances. So I'm going to put my ePortal on that to avoid any problems.

    I've still got the SQL Server CALs to sort out, though.

    Hi Overworked, would you detail me the fix for getting IIS to work on 2008. Serco have spent over an hour woking on this problem.

    Cheers
    Paul

    @Bearer,

    Do you mean getting ePortal working on IIS7 on Server 2008? It works well, if you know how.

    Serco publish a guide but there's a crucial point they've missed. You have to give the ISAPI-DLL execute permission on each of the virtual directories.

    Also, it won't run on 64-bit. Serco spent a couple of hours trying on my server too.

    Let me know.

    Hi guys,

    I've spoken to Beardy and issue resolved.
    You're right about the bit we've missed, the document is being updated.
    The 64 bit server requires a 64bit ISAPI and it is dependant upon architecture, AMD or Intel. This isn't publically available to current schools but if you have installed on a 64bit server and need to get it running in IIS PM me.

    Mic @ Serco

    Pricing and Licensing
    Explains a little more, prehaps i'm a little anal but at least that covers all the bases.
    SQL 2005 is licensed per Server, regardless of CPUs, a factor I overlooked to my cost...

    It can be, but doesn't have to be. Like all Microsoft software, there are an array of licensing methods for it.
