You do not need to purchase CALs for trial software, but you are not supposed to be using it in a production environment I don't believe. Is the 2007 trial software still available and functional? Seems a little late to be trying the previous version, if you are thinking about implementing anything now I would start by looking at 2010.

Kindly.

Unfortunately I have heard Wictor's and moontear's explanations, both from Microsoft on the same project! It depends on who you talk to. Call Microsoft and ask, if you don't like the answer, call back, you'll probably get a different rep, so keep calling back until you get the answer you want, then go with that. ;) I don't think they fully understand their ...

No, a CAL is not connected to a specific farm. One CAL is valid for any number of farms (of course there's a whole lotta fine print). It's the same as for Windows Server CAL's - you don't need a CAL per Windows Server.


2

To my knowledge this model does not exist, you need to have the exact same licensing type on all servers in the SAME farm. Of course you could envision multiple farms and consume published Service Applications from other farms! Regards, C:\Marius

See the post history for my previous version of this answer, it's actually wrong. SSRS 2012 as a service application is the equivalent of the Add-In in 2010.

As long as the server is running Enterprise, you'll have no 'conflict'. UserLicensingEnabled = false just means that you have not enabled the licensing separation -- in other words, all users must have a Standard + Enterprise CAL for this particular farm (versus enabling user licensing and assigning them to a Standard-only license). MSDN only has ...

You need a Windows User CAL to leverage SharePoint Foundation (doesn't matter how your users authenticate to it), that is how Foundation is provided "for free" (it isn't free).

To be in compliance it's more than just ensuring you have deactivated certain features.
