How to add enterprise user CALs to existing standard user CALs to enable DLP in Exchange 2016

Hello,

We have exchange server 2016 with standard user CALs. I need to implement DLP and this requires enterprise user CALs.

I purchased the enterprise user CALs as an add-on. How do I apply this to the specific users that need DLP enabled?

Thanks.

I have that same option and I have enterprise CALs. Its not preventing you from creating the policy is it? :)

that command is just an estimate and is used to calculate what CALs you would need based on what the mailboxes are enabled for, its not used to Add licenses

You dont add them, you just need them. If you have purchased them, then you are entitled to use that feature for those users you purchased them for.

Hi Andy,

I think I need to do something because as noted in the image above, the exchange server doesn't know about the enterprise CALs.

When I run the Get-ExchangeServerAccessLicenseUser -LicenseName "Exchange Server 2016 Standard CAL" the results only shows the standard CALs.

LicenseName Name


Exchange Server 2016 Standard CAL UserName@Domain.com

What am I missing?

Thank you.

Hi Andy,

I was able to create the policy. When I saw that message I didn't proceed as I didn't think it would allow me. I tested and I think I should be all set for now.

Thank you.
