    How is it with W2k8 SBS licensing if I add W2K8 member server?

    Do W2K8 SBS CALs also cover this member server?

    Do I need to buy CALs for W2k8 Standard?

    What if this member server is also TS? Do I need to buy TS CALs and W2k8
    standard user CALs?

  2. My understanding is that Server CALs are covered by your SBS Standard CALs.
    TS CALs, however, are always extra.

    (Note: the usual disclaimers apply. IANAL, nor do I pretend to be one.)

    Are you sure? I received different information and now I'm confused. Can you
    check and confirm this info please.

  4. Yes SBS licenses cover member servers, however member
    services licenses don't cover SBS.

  5. Correct. And you ALWAYS need TS CALs in addition for any TS users/devices
    when you run a terminal server.
