Hi, this is for college work. The server needs to support 56 computers. 01 to 35 Windows 2000 Professional Workstations, 36 to 46 Windows 7 Professional Workstations and 47 to 56 Ubuntu 10.04 Workstations. Laptops
running Windows XP Professional need to access the office network remotely. Is this the correct site to buy licenses? http://www.microsoft.com/business/en-gb/products/Windows-Small-Business-Server-2011/Pages/standard.aspx Do
I have to buy licenses from Microsoft Resellers?
Do I buy user, device, external connectors, Per Processor licensing or Speciality Server Licensing CALs and where?
Which is the cheapest option?
So if I buy 12 Suites which has 5 device CALs each. It will cost £2171.88 / £1990.89. http://www.equanet.co.uk/catalogue/item/it-equipment/Software/Network-Operating-Systems/Microsoft-Windows-Small-Business-Server-2011-CAL-Suite/6UA-03561/MSSBS057
On the Microsoft website it says the server software costs about £1000 http://www.misco.co.uk/product/Q301391/Win-Small-Bus-Svr-Std-2011-64Bit-English-DVD-5-Clt
Could I buy this for example http://www.misco.co.uk/product/182254/Small-Business-Server-BUNDLE and buy licenses for it? What kind of support will I get? It says 90
day free telephone support.
For SBS I'd ask them here.
