Windows Server + RDP + Office License clarity RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Community, can some one clarify/advise me on the below scenario please ?

    I am planning to go for Windows Server + RDP CALS + Office 365 Subscription with 10 RDP devices. Around 10 Users will do remote session using rdp devices and use word or excel.

    1. As Windows Server 2019 is latest, I will go with that. Now for 10 RDP users/devices, I will go for 10 RDP CALS. So, am I still need to buy Windows Server 2019 User/Server CALS separately ?

    2. 'Office 365 Home' subscription webpage says 'Share with your entire family – for up to 6 people' In that case is it enough if I buy two subscriptions for 10 users?

    Thanks is advance.

    in general ,we need to purchase windows server 2019 RDS per user cal for each user and windows server 2019 per user cal for each user
    respectively from Microsoft volume license center. 

    2. 'Office 365 Home' subscription webpage says 'Share with your entire family – for up to 6 people' In that case is it enough if I buy two subscriptions for 10 users?
    for office license side the answer is yes.
    for using Office365 home on RDS server ,there is no document state "Office 365 home subscription" can use
    shared computer activation on RDS server .Meanwhile Office 365 home not support "Real-time co-authoring so multiple users can work in the same document, simultaneously". 
    we can speak to a office365 sales expert, call 1-855-270-0615 to check the above information. Available Monday - Friday 6am - 6pm PT.

    3 we can buy all license about "
    Windows Server + RDP CALS + Office 365 Subscription" from Microsoft volume license center .
