    All the options listed are different types of Volume Licence, other than the first. In most instances it's probably either Open License or Select License - the later being the more popular. It should say on your Invoice or Licence certificate which type it is. If not speak to whomever you bought the licenses from, they should know which type of agreement it was.

    OK. Think it will probably be Select but have just sent an email asking.

    Thanks for your help.

    it was select licence.

    Next question is - user or device licencing. After reading info on MS site I am leaning towards user licencing but never having used this in the real world I would appreciate your advice.

    Typically, if I remember this correctly, you use user licensing if you have more devices than potential concurrent users, and device licensing if you have more users than available devices. 9/10 in a school I'm guessing device licensing is the way to go. It's what I've always used in the past.

    This is only for a few staff members who will always be using the laptop they have been assigned. Same number of users as devices.

    The majority of environments tend to use Per User TSCALs. This is the case because in most environments individual computers are assigned to a single user, with few cases where multiple users share computers. In this situation, the use of Per User TSCALs makes the administration of licenses easy for the administrator because the number of licenses simply equals the number of connecting users.

    Yes that way they can have multiple devices if required.

    Could this be my final question? (probably not but hay ho)

    Installing Sims, should I,

    Click 'install app on terminal server' in control panel and let it do a full install including dependencies like .net, adobe

    or install the dependencies first and then click 'install app on terminal server'

    Does it make a difference?

    Install newest versions of Adobe, Office and do their updates. The run your SIMs install as normal from SIMsInst is what I do.

    Should items like adobe be installed using the 'install app on terminal server method?

    Not sure what it really does under the hood.

    What encryption level do I choose between FIPS or High? When searching, most posts say you should enable FIPS or High but do not pick one over the other.

    All clients are 7 pro and I have TLS set as the security layer.
