The Microsoft Core User CAL Suite is a set of four user client access licenses (CALs) and two user client management licenses (MLs). Together they provide user licensing for key Microsoft server technologies.
A user CAL authorises a user to access a server from any device (for example, when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another at home). A user client ML licenses the management of any number of OSEs, as long as only one user has access to them. If more than one user has access to a certain OSE or set of OSEs, an ML is necessary for each user. See below for details on the CALs and client MLs included with this donation
