    Re: Licensing clarification

    Windows Server is the operating system.
    CAL = Client Access License. This give the client (ie Windows XP) a license to connect to the server.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        Re: Licensing clarification

        Considering that Windows NT Server is a Windows Server I think you need to clarify exactly what you are trying to say.
        Are you asking about:
        Exchange Server,
        SQL Server
        SMS Server
        ISA Server
        Live Communication Server
        etc
        etc
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

        2 2 1 1 2

          If I go to Start --> Programs --> Administrative Tools --> Licensing and click on the Product Views tab, I see 3 Products listed:

          Microsoft BackOffice
          Windows NT Server
          Windows Server

          Now I did have a mixture of Windows 2000 and NT4 server at one stage, now only have Windows 2000 server. I don't have Exchange Server nor SQL Server running.

          98% of the workstations take up a Windows Server CAL, but there are a few taking an additional Windows NT Server CAL.

          So now I am wondering what the difference is between a Windows Server license and a Windows NT Server license? Is there any difference? Or is the Windows Server license the "new version" of the Windows NT Server license?
