Add or Remove Client Access Licenses
Applies To: Windows MultiPoint Server 2012
Every station that connects to a MultiPoint Server system, including a MultiPoint Server computer that is used as a station, must have a valid client access license (CAL). The Add Client Access Licenses wizard lets you add as many CALs as you need for your MultiPoint Server system.
Depending upon your agreement with Microsoft, you can add the CALs that are available to you under different licensing programs. Select the CAL you want to add from one of the following CAL options:
Product key. The product key required to add the CAL is provided with the MultiPoint Server station hub.
Open license. The information that is required to add the CAL consists of the authorization and license numbers located on the header of your order confirmation.
Other volume licensing programs. The information that is required to add the CAL consists of the agreement or enrollment number found on your signed agreement form.
For more information about license compliance for software and CALs, see the Important Information about Software License Compliance topic.
