MSDE Licensing

May 5, 2004

The MSDE licence says that it can be used for up to 5 concurrent users. My app is an ASP.NET app, so won't I just be using one user - the ASP.NET account? I'm wondering whether we can get away with just buying a new server and sticking MSDE on it rather than shelling out for another £5000 SQL server licence...

Licensing Of MSDE

Jun 24, 2004

I expected to find loads of posts regarding licensing but surprising not.

I have SQL Server Developer Edition, which I believe gives me the right to build and distribute applications which use MSDE (http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/howtobuy/msdeuse.asp).

Is there any requirement for the end user to purchase any microsoft product or license?

MSDE Text Datatype - Unable To Store More Than 900 Characters. (msde + Visual Studio 2003)

Jun 6, 2005

Hello,

I'm not sure if it's the setup I did wrong, but I can't seem to get my
text datatype in my database to store more than 900 characters. 
I'm trying to setup a news database for my website, which will populate
the information into a datagrid.  To test, I manually added a news
item in the database through the visual studio 2003 gui.  I
immediately noticed a problem as the I was getting an error after a
long news item saying:

"The value you entered is not consistent with the data type or length of the column, or over grid buffer limit."

I couldn't find anthing to set the buffer limit and the datatype is
"text" filled with simple text in the column.  As a further test,
I
simply entered 12334567890123... up to 900 characters and still
recevied the error.

I would appreciate someone leading me in the right direction on this one.

Thanks a lot.

How Do I Change The Name Of A Computer Running MSDE With Out Reinstalling MSDE

May 27, 2000

I am trying to change the computer name of a machine running MSDE but I get an error when SQL Server starts. With regular SQL when I change the name of a computer I re-run setup and setup fixes this problem. MSDE can only be installed from unattended mode so I canít rerun setup and fix the problem.

My question is "How do I change the name of a computer running MSDE with out reinstalling MSDE"

We currently have the problem, that all our machines are produced with the

the checksum key for the MSDE isn't valid anymore. As MSDE can only be installed
from unattended mode so I canít rerun setup and fix the problem. Does anyone
know a solution for this problem ?? A program recalculating the cheksum ??

MSDE Worth Using Or Should I Invest In MySQL? (was MSDE)

Mar 9, 2005

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this this question but I'll give it a shot.

The only db development that I have ever done is in MS Access. I have a project at work that is being accomplished in VB and I need a db engine to use as the back end. Visual studio came with a copy of MSDE. Is this tool worth using or should I invest in mySQL? Are there any advantages to using MSDE over mySQL?

Is there a way to get Licensing information(product key) off an installed version of SQL Server 2005?  Most Microsoft Software has the product key in the about dialog box, but SQL Server doesn't have this anywhere.
Thanks,

SQL Licensing

Nov 2, 2000

Help me please!!!

I'm going crazy trying to find out the license deal for SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition. It seems that here (in the UK) the Developer edition exists and you can buy it but, Micrisoft (UK) and various resellers etc don't know the licensing deal!!!

Now, i've read a snippet somewhere about the developer edition that for a fixed price of around $499 you get a server license limited to 8 connections and you don't have to buy any CALs! However my reseller thinks that you still have to buy CALs up to maximum of 8? Well, i don't think so!!

Has anyone got this edition and know the deal?

Many thanks...

We are about to deploy an application that uses SQL Server 7.0. Enterprise edition running on a dual processor machine. We expect a maximum concurrent usage of about 500 users, normally about 150/200. Could anyone advise me what the cheapest license arrangement would be, I've had conflicting views from Microsoft and two third party software suppliers? We intend to use the machine in future for other applications but as yet have very little idea of usage.

Hi SQL TEAM

I'm in a bit of a situation.

Please bare with me as i explain.

We would like to host a web server

Web Server = Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition running IIS

All the website hosted on this server will be available to the public.

Question 1.How do i licenses Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition?
Question 2.Do i need a CAL for every single person browsing to any of the websites hosted on the above server.
As far as i know you can not get a PER CPU license for Windows 2003 Server, is this true.
Question 3. Where would a CAL be required.
Question 4. How about remote desktop to the above server? that requires a CAL.

Thanks in advance for any replies

I know that I can have up to 2 GB RAM for the Standard Edition of SQLServer, but if I had two instances, can I have 2 GB per instance, say for 2instances which would equal 4 GB, or is it 2 GB for that installation of SQLServer and all of it's instances?Thanks.

Obviously I'm missing something here (Like a brain??), but from the documentation I'm somewhat confused as to the licensing aspect of the everywhere edition.

Scenario: I have a client (small business for example) and I'm updeating their MS Access application, currently having the front and back ends seperate. May I substitute SQL Everywhere edition in place of the data back-end without further licensing, or will a CAL be required?

Thanks,

Jul 22, 2007

Hi,



I need to know if I have to buy an extra license for my subscriber server in the following two scenarios. I have checked similar threads in the forum but could not find an exact answer.



Scenario 1 :


Server A : Publisher - SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition.

Server B : Subscriber - SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition

Server B has ONLY the replica of one or more DBs of Server A

I have already purchased SQL Server processor license for Server A

Replication Type : Transaction Replication


Scenario 2 :


Server A : Publisher - SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition.

Server B : Subscriber - SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition

Server B has the replica of one or more DBs of Server A plus one or more operational (mostly reporting) DBs

I have already purchased SQL Server processor license for Server A

Replication Type : Transaction Replication



Thanks

DTS Licensing Error - Please Help

laptop and when I try to use DTS to transfer data from a SQL Server 7.0 running on NT Server 4.0 in the SAME NT domain. The error I get says that the
licensing arrangement I have does not permit me to use DTS.

Please help!

SQL2000 And Licensing

Aug 7, 2001

In a replication environment:

Does SQL 2000 standard edition support replication if it would be configured as a subscriber.
Is SQL 2000 Enterprise Edition required for a Publisher and Distributor or can you get away with standard edition.
In a web site environment how many CALs are needed when users access the database via webservers and middleware.

Thanks

DTS Licensing Problem

Oct 18, 2000

I have a laptop that currently runs Windows 98. I have loaded SQL Server 7.0 Desktop Edition onto this computer. I am getting a DTS licensing error when I attempt to transform data using DTS between remote SQL Servers. The only workaround I have found is to create a DTS package and perform the transformations using transfer manager. This works for me now, but I am wondering how I might go about solving this license problem. It is my belief that a demo version of SQL server 7.0 might have existed on this machine long before I loaded my installation. If this is the case, how can I straighten out the registry to fix my licensing problem?

SQL Server Licensing

Apr 10, 2002

If SQL Server 2000 is loaded onto a 8 processor machine, can I legitimately
load Standard Edition, which will only use 4 of the 8 processors, or as
some interpretations of the license suggest, must I purchase Enterprise
Edition (i.e. you are not permitted to load SQL Server on a machine which
has more processors than the Product is capable of using) ?.

I know the "reasonable" answer, but what is the legal position ?

SMS 2 & SQL 7.0 Licensing Question

Dec 15, 1999

I have an SMS 2.0 site set up on one server and SQL 7.0 installed on another server. I have 288 users and have 288 SMS client license and one SMS server license. My question is do I need to have client access licenses for my 288 users for SQL or is the SQL 7.0 licenses included in the SMS package as long as I only use SQL for SMS?

Also does anyone know if SQL 7.0 ask for the number of license that I have during the installation process?

I would appreciate any input anyone may have on this.

Thanks,
Myron

Licensing Question

Nov 10, 2004

I have three heavy duty servers with 32-bit dual P4 CPUs, 4GB RAM, SCSI boot drive, fibrechannel RAID (40+ spindle).

I want to purchase SQL Server licenses for these machines. SQL Server 2000 standard edition seems perfect except it only supports 2GB of RAM and from my understanding, to utiliize the /3GB switch in boot.ini, you need to use Enterprise Edition. You use AWE if you have more than 4GB (which we currently don't).

Is there any way to get standard edition to use a full 3GB?
Anyone know what kind of upgrade path will be provided from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005 licenses?
Will SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition utilize 3-4GB of RAM?
