Licensing Project Server while Search Service is on another server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Farm:

    1 - Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise with Project Server 2013

    2 - Sharepoint 2013 Enterprise with Search Service configured for searching machine 1.

    3 - SQL Server


    How many Project Server 2013 licenses do I need in this configuration? Does SP server with Search Service need additional Project Server 2013 license?

  • Hey there Kuba,

    If you plan to use Project Server in your Farm, you need a Project Server server licence for each server in the Farm (SQL Server doesn't count).

    Each Farm server needs:

     - SharePoint Enterprise

     - Project Server

    Each User needs stacked CALs :

     - Windows Server

     - SQL Server

     - SharePoint Standard CAL

     - SharePoint Enterprise CAL

     - Project Server CAL (Project Pro comes with a Project Server CAL)

    Hope that helps,
