I am wondering if anyone knows the answer to these questions about Windows Server-we are buying 2012 Standard:
- For starters, I am confused with CAL's-is this just for the technical work on the server like adding roles and such, or does it mean that I can only have 1 person in the network access files and other things like Active Directory? I will be the only one accessing it for technical stuff from a monitor that is directly connected to it-is that 1 CAL?.
- Number 2: With Active Directory can users access their specific folders and software like a normal desktop i.e. access the Internet and other software. I heard that you create a disc for AD and just plop it in the computers in your network and Viola!-they are all connected and setup-myth?
- How do we get Word and other Microsoft Office products on the server? Do we use Office 365 or some cloud based thingy? Or, do we buy a volume license (which I believe means multiple licenses like 5 or 10 at a time-then in the Server add the licenses)???
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I am doing all the reading I can, some links would be appreciated too!
