    Hi,
    just wanted to ask a question?

    If I am running 100 computers with windows7 Professional, do I need to have 100 server licenses to operate these, or can I access anything on a server using domains, policies and sharing authentications, with only 5 cals on three servers?

    You need a Windows 7 Professional license for each computer.

    Depends on the license term for the particular application. In this discussion of Client Access License I find the paragraph:

    Thank you TerryNet.

    The truth is this will be for a small business, the wording was a little off. these 100 computers each have a Win7 Pro. license, but I will be using the services from my servers example, Exchange and Databases/SQL. Can I accomplish this using a domain service, where each client has his/her own domain name to access these files. Thank You

    How are the servers licensed? Microsoft SQL Server can be licensed per processor or CAL. A CAL license will run over $15,000. A processor license for a single processor server would be about $7,000. Exchange has its own licensing model. Windows Server, also its own license. With 100 users, I suggest you have a chat with a Microsoft sales rep to check into volume licensing, support / software assurance, and possibly hosted services.

    Thanks to all. I now have a base and understanding of the other elements to look into.
