MS Sharepoint 2007 licensing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sirs !

    We have 01 MS SharePoint 2007 SP2 Intranet server with 01 SharePoint 2007 server license+150 UserCAL licenses. That MS SharePoint 2007 SP2 is now out of extended support as MS announcement, but we are still using that SP 2007 SP2.

    My question is:

    -Now we have 02 users. Do we have to buy 02 New User CALs of SP 2007 SP2 ?

    -If Yes, where we can buy ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Best regards,

  • I suggest you to ask presales from MS.

    For my thought, just add two users is ok.

  • Dear Justin !

    My question is:

    -We have 150 MS sharepoint 2007 User CALs and 150 users already.

    -Now we have 02 new users. Do we have to buy more 02 SP 2007 UserCALs for these new users ?

  • Since MS SharePoint 2007 is out of support. You won't be able to purchase license for the users and MS will not provide the support. So you can directly add the users to SP 2007 as it is out of extended warranty.

  • Hi,

    Sharepoint users CALs are just a paper Document that allowed to your users acces legaly to Sharepoint server. you need to purchase 2 X sharepoint 2016 user CALs and with the 2016 version CALs you have access to sharepoint server 2007 version. you don't need any installation/activation for CALs.

    Microsoft CALs use rights allowed access to corresponding version or erliear versions of servers.
