  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a question regarding CALs

    1.How are CALs handled when more than one implementation exists in an organisation? If users access both farms do they need 2CALs? How is that managed?

    2.When are CALs issued??

       - When a user is added to people & groups?

       - When a user authenticate viw NT?

    3.How can we track CALs used at a instance? and where can we see that?


    Thanks in Advance

  • Hi SRPD,


    Since the question is a license issue, you can call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, and you can get more detail information from there. Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in their locations.


    Also you can refer to this article to get some detailed information about CALs:




    Thanks & Regards,
