CRM CAL and Windows CAL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Currently we are evaluating CRM 2015 for our organization. Let me give a brief here.

    We have Sales users who work on the field and currently are not configured on our AD and don’t have a windows CAL. Now these sales users will be using CRM from their devices say, mobiles and tablets.

    Now in order to provide these users to access CRM I would have to create them on AD which is fine and assign them a CRM license which doesn’t seems to be a problem.

    However my query is if I create these users on AD, do I have to assign a windows CAL to these users as well. Do I need a windows CAL for every CRM user I create on AD because all I need is for them to be authenticated through AD for logging on to CRM.

    If I have to provide them a windows license for adding them on AD that's going to be a costly affair and we may have to reconsider.

    Thanks in advance!
