    Windows Licensing

    I am looking for some insight to get an idea on licensing for a Windows 200x server. Currently we are using Novell and are going to be switching out to Windows but have a few questions first. Can anyone help me out and answer a couple questions listed below?

    1. Our student enrollment is 950 students, with only 450 getting onto server(s).
      - 450 students to access storage on server (Server 2003 or Server 2008)
    2. Our staff tallies up to 150 faculty/staff.
      - 150 staff accessing storage on server (Server 2003 or Server 2008)
    3. Within our Elementaries, we have one profile that all students can access/login to simultaneously (up to 100 at any given time).
      - How is this handled via licensing?
    4. With the above numbers what will we be looking at for licensing?
      - Is this license an annual? or can it be open license?

    If its a standard fat client setup you will need a License for each client and server and CALS for every device.
