    Re: Difference between PER SEAT & PER SERVER

    Basically:
    Per Seat allows a client to connect to many servers

    Per Server allows the set number of clients to connect to the single server

    In most environments, per seat is the most cost effective

      Thanks a Ton!!!

      I got a basic idea about this licensing part. But i am bit confused so can you explain me with my given query.

      Suppose if i opt for Per Seat license & i have two servers one as file server & other as print server. No. of desktop i have is three.
      So what is no. of CAL i need to purchase.

      AND

      What if i opt for Per Server license & i have two servers one as file server & other as print server. No. of desktop i have is three.
      So what is no. of CAL i need to purchase.

      Please do reply.

        Three per seat or six per server, assuming that the users of all three desktops utilise both servers.

          Per seat: 3 licenses (I suppose 4 if you want to print from one server on the other)

          Per Server: 6 licenses (or maybe 8 if a server accesses the other)

          Damn, got beaten to it.....

              Yes, except that I hadn't thought of one server using another.

              In other words Jitesh, you need to consider what is on every other server when considering how many licences you need for server 'A'.
