Licensing SBS 2011 and the Premium Add-On via Open Value with Part Numbers

To start a new Open Value Agreement with the 3 year spread payment option we will use the following part numbers for any client that requires SQL for their setup:

  • T72-0082: SBS 2011 Standard
    • 6UA-01452: SBS STD 1 CAL Pack
    • 6UA-01804: SBS STD 5 CAL Pack
    • 6UA-00908: SBS STD 20 CAL Pack
  • 2XG-00206: SBS 2011 Premium Add-On
    • 2YG-00434: SBS Premium Add-On 1 CAL Pack
    • 2YG-01039: SBS Premium Add-On 5 CAL Pack
    • 2YG-01596: SBS Premium Add-On 20 CAL Pack

For a client that has 36 users with 27 of those users working in an application that is tied into SQL as a backend we would license as follows:

  • (1x) T72-0082: SBS 2011 Standard includes 5 CALs 
    • (1x) 6UA-01452: SBS STD 1 CAL Pack
    • (2x) 6UA-01804: SBS STD 5 CAL Pack
    • (1x) 6UA-00908: SBS STD 20 CAL Pack
    • Total: 1 SBS 2011 STD License + SA  and 31 CALs (36 total)
  • (1x) 2XG-00206: SBS 2011 Premium Add-On includes 5 CALs 
    • (2x) 2YG-00434: SBS Premium Add-On 1 CAL Pack
    • (None) 2YG-01039: SBS Premium Add-On 5 CAL Pack
    • (1x) 2YG-01596: SBS Premium Add-On 20 CAL Pack
    • Total: 1 SBS 2011 Premium Add-On License + SA and 22 CALs (27 total)

The CAL licensing structure has changed from the SBS 2008 one in that we need an SBS 2011 STD CAL to cover _all_ users accessing the SBS server and its services. We then need Premium Add-On CALs to cover users accessing SQL.

UPDATE 2011-02-24: I missed the included 5 CALs on the base SBS and Add-On SKUs. My apologies for that. Calculations adjusted accordingly.

According to the SBS2011 licensing FAQ, the Premium ADD-on includes 5 Premium CALS, therefore, in your example you should surely licence as

Total: 1 SBS 2011 Premium Add-On License + SA and 17 Premium Add-On CALs

?

A.

Good catch. The description I was reading for the OVL part numbers did not show the 5 CALs included.

Thanks,

Philip
