Device CAL activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • What administrator tool do I use to active device cals on a single server?  I recently installed Server 2012 R2  on a stand along server.

    I purchased a server license and 50 device cals.  I was able to activate the server with no problems. The support center told me to

    use Remote Desktop to active the cals.  Will this work if I have only a single server?

  • Hi,

    wich CALs do you mean?

    if you mean Windows Server CALs, than you do not need any activation/Installation.

    if you mean RDS CALs , than you need a license code to install RDS CALs onto your license server. A license code is provided when you purchase your RDS CALs. For more information, see Purchase Client Access Licenses (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=81077).
