Client licenses on Windows 2003 server
I am asked to install a server PC with Windows 2003 server in a customer Windows network, but I am not sure about the client licensing I need to provide.
The Server is going to be installed on the customers domain (also Windows 2003 server). There will be about 50 PC's on the network, who will (not all at the same time) use a MS-ACCESS data base on my PC. They are all registered on the domain users on the original server, not on mine.
Do I need to order the Windows 2003 server with 50 client licenses? Are the the clients counted as users logging onto my server PC (then I would need 50 CAL's) or are the users already logged on the domain on the other server?
Thanks in advance for any help!
