  • Hi,

    If you intend to have users connect to the VMs via RDS, then understand that the per-minute charge for the Azure VM Does Not Include Rights To RDS, or offer an RDS CAL equivalent.

    Windows Server CALs are not required for accessing Windows Server running in the Azure environment because the access rights are included in the per-minute charge for the Virtual Machines. Use of Windows Server on-premises (whether in a VHD or otherwise) requires obtaining a separate license and is subject to the normal licensing requirements for use of software on-premises.

    kindly refer the link : Microsoft Azure VMs often include Licensing built right in, but not everything
