Connection CAL is required to use a File Server on windows server 2016 vmware.
So you are asking whether CAL is required to use a File server?
If so Yes, the workstations in your organization are networked, you likely depend on network server software to perform certain functions, such as file and print sharing. To access this server software legally, a Client Access License (CAL) may be required.

Yes, Cals are required. A Windows Server CAL is a license that grants access Windows Server. CALs are used in conjunction with Microsoft Windows Server OS licenses to allow Users and/or Devices to access and utilize the services of that windows server
- User CALs allow a single user access to Windows Server from an unlimited number of devices
- Device CALs allow an unlimited number of users to access Windows Server from a single device

I am going to explain my scenario to you. I have my virtual server farm, I need to implement a new file server.
I currently have a Windows Server 2012 and I am considering upgrading to Windows Server 2016. Users log in through currently shared folders. Nobody enters via RDP, only infrastructure administrators.
My query is I require CAL to be able to share the file folders? Like I do with Windows Server 2012
