  • If you already have required amount of CALs you dont need to buy any new.

  • Definitely you need windows server CALs, for SQL you can use either CALs for users or per CPU licensing, which might be a cheaper option if you have many users.

    You need as many CALs as many users or devices you have.

    For the windows server CALs, if I have 100 users and I have 100
    windows server user cals, I don't need to buy any more windows server
    cals to use sharepoint right?

    For SQL cals, if I have 100 users and I
    already have 100 SQL user cals for a different SQL database, I don't
    need to buy any more sql cals to use the sharepoint sql database right?
