How to Add CALs to SQL 2012 Standard?


  • We purchased SQL 2012 Standard with 5 CALs.

    We bought an additional 10 CALs for a total of 15.

    SQL 2012 standard is installed but we can not find where to add the CALs.

    We have looked online and can not find any info...

    How is this done?

  • Hello,

    SQL Server does not keep track of CAL licenses. It’s an honor system. You just need to keep the licensing papers on a safe place in case someone requests them.

    Hope this helps.

  • OMG!

    I guess that explains why MS could not answer that question on the phone.. After transferring me 4x nobody could tell me.  They ended up saying I needed to pay for a support incident to get the info.
