Windows Server Cal for Mobile Devices RRS feed

  • 질문

  • I have plenty of Device Cals for my 2016 server but a licensing specialist is saying my mobile devices need User Cals. The mobile devices are android phones and I use my server to authenticate them on the WIFI and DHCP/DNS. I've looked into this but am not finding anything why I can't use Device Cals. Am I missing something?

  • Hi,

    If your server offers WiFi to phone device, it would be difficult to count every different user and license them. Then, an external connector should be considered.

    Below is description about External Connectors, quote from “https://www.microsoft.com/en-my/licensing/product-licensing/client-access-license”:
    If you want external users—such as business partners, external contractors, or customers—to be able to access your network, you have two licensing options:
    1. Acquire CALs for each of your external users.
    2. Acquire External Connector (EC) licenses for each server that will be accessed by your external users.
