Active Directory Rights Management Services AD RMS licensing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    could someone explain me if the same rules apply to AD RMS CALs that applys to normal Windows CALs?

    Especially reassignment:

    CALs may not be reassigned to another user or device more than once every 90 days.

    One of my clients would like to know how many AD RMS CALs he needs to have.

    Thank you for support.

    Best Regards

  • Hi Dawid,

    If your client have SA, Enterprise CAL have RMS license included so I believe this would be the shortest way to answer. However, if not, there hasn't changed much in RMS CALs since 2003.
