How many CALs are provided with basic SBS 2011 installation package?


  • SBS Standard comes with 5 user CALs. 

    SBS Essentials includes Zero CALs.  This is because no CALs are needed.  The package allows 25 users to access the server and use its services, including backing up 25 client systems.

    Essentials can be "transmogged" to more than 25 users, but you have to purchase 26 Server Standard CALs to add the 26th user.  After that, you can purchase them as needed.
