We have a win2003 server box that is using MS-SQL 2000. We have a 20user license on this server at the present time. We have a need toallow up to 5 simultaneous additional users access to a subset of thisdata from our IIS server. How does this affect my current SQL ServerLicense? We can restrict access via connection pooling, etc. Can weuse a 30 user license or must we go to a CPU license? Does anyoneknow where to find Microsoft licensing information on this?
SQL 2000 pricing and licensing is quite confusing, and even more pain including the upgrading pricing from sql6.5/sql7.0.
I got very clear Windows2000 pricing and upgrading from one Microsoft web address. But just could not find a ONE Microsoft web sit explicitely describe the $ pricing for each of SQL2000 edition (per processor vs. CAL..., including upgrading from SQL 6.5, SQL 7.0). May be I missed that site?
Hello.After searching Microsoft's website for hours and confusing myself morethan I was before I started...Can anyone explain to me what the current state of affairs is for SQL2000 licensing?In particular with a server that has multiple processors and multipleinstances of SQL Server 2000 running - for both Standard and EnterpriseEditions of SQL Server 2000.Please help!Regards,Taz
I have a VERY Legitmate use to install sql 4 workgroups on a pc without licensing it. I am making a disk image for MANY pcs to be imaged and load licensing after the imaging is completed.
I have been able to do this with Windows XP Professional, MS Office 2003 and a couple non-Ms programs. The information for MS software even came from their KB, so I know what I am doing is legit. I just can't find any information on doing this for my sql app.
We have a product which uses SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition with Per Seat licensing option. Going forward with a new release of the product, we intend to upgrade to SQL Server 2005. Till now our product was being used in non web based scenarios so the Per Seat licensing option helped our case. In the upcoming release which would use SQL Server 2005 we need to break off from the non web based scenario as the product would use SQL Server over internet. So isn't it correct to go for the Processor based licensing instead of the Per seat licensing ?
If so then what would be the ideal manner to upgrade the license from Per Seat (in SQL Server 2000) license type to Processor based (in SQL Server 2005) license type ?
I have heard of Software Assurance providing assistance in version upgrades. Would it help in case I need to upgrade from one license type to another ? Or is it applicable only in case of upgrade where the license type is fixed ?
Hi, I have downloaed microsoft's Best Practice Analyser for SQL Server 2000. I would like to recomend this tool in our organisation. Before that i want to confirm that is there any restrictions to use this tool or it is an free ware tool.
I want to use DTS to import some data from remote server to my local server. Every time I get following error message "The license for the installation of Microsoft SQL Server on your source and destination connections does not permit the use DTS to transfer data".
Both my servers are on SP2. Why I have such error? What should I do?
How do you increase the number of license? With 6.5 we were able to do this through the setup on the CD but it will not let me do this with 7.0? The specific error is SQL Server Error 18460. Logon Failed. The maximum simultaneous user count of 5 license s for this Standard Edition server has been exceeded. I have upgraded the licenses in the License manager for Windows NT but SQL 7.0 does not seem to recognize it.
My company is developing their site with MS SQL which will then be transfered onto another server hosted by our ISP, do I need to purchase a SQL license for that machine - exactly what do I need to purchase.

Hi , I have two servers, One is with per seat mode another with per license mode. when i am registering one server which is having per seat mode at one of my client machine , it is giving u dont have license permission. Can anyone suggest me regarding license modes if u have two servers.
Hi all, There is a guy in my company install a sql server himself, but he picked the per seat license rather then the per server (we got the per server license), is there a way to change it without re-install the whole sql server? or need to reinstall from start? Thanks, Westley
I run w2003 standard and SQL 2K on my development machines. I have installed this environment several times with no problems. Now I am setting up a new machine, an AMD dual core.
Right after installing and validating w2003 I tried to install SQL 2K developer edition and after the first few dialogs it brings up a license key dialog with an already filled in key and it will not let me continue.
This product doesn't require a key, and no keys are given for it in my MSDN subscription. I just tried this CD in an XP machine and it installs without asking for a key. It never asked for a key when I installed on previous w2003 std. machines either.
Why I sit asking for a key now? Why will it not install on this particular machine? Thanks.
I have a question concerning the license requirements for SQL Server Express Edition. I read from a previous MSDN license agreement for MSDE the following non-competition section:
"7.6 If you choose to redistribute MSDE, you also agree: (i) that your application shall not substantially duplicate the capabilities of Microsoft Access or, in the reasonable opinion of Microsoft, complete with same; and (ii) that unless your application requires your customers to license Microsoft Access in order to operate, you shall not reproduce or use MSDE for commercial distribution in conjunction with a general purpose word processing, spreadsheet or database management software product, or an integrated work or product suite whose components include a general purpose word processing, spreadsheet, or database management software product except for the exclusive use of importing data to the various formats supported by Microsoft Access."
I can't find this section or similar verbiage in the SQL Server Express Edition redistribution EULA or in the newest MSDN license agreement. My company has a database product that provides other functionalities besides just being a database. However we didn't use MSDE due to the section quoted above. I am wondering whether SQL Server Express Edition's license model has changed?
I installed sql server 2005 standard edition a few months ago and while installing i realized that it was the 5 CAL version. I need the per processor license. so we order the per processor license standard edition. i go to install it and it tells me to run setup with the SKUUPGRADE option. i try that and it doesn't work. so then, i go to control panel and hit change/remove and it installs some stuff. i install some hotfixes to get it up to build 9.0.3159 like the rest of my servers. however, i can't find any way to tell what kind of license it's using. this is one of my production servers so i can't have any restrictions or reduced performance if it still thinks it's running a 5 CAL version. how do i tell what kind of license it's using? i was originally going to uninstall sql server 2005 and reinstall it using the new media, but this server is also one of my production sql server 2000 servers and if it messed up my sql server 2000 installation i would be in huge trouble.
I have different application installed on a server all of them are interface to SQL Server databases. I want to know if I have 5 user license to one application, 10 user license to other application, 3 user license to third application. So, I have as an example 18 application license. My question is: What does affect the access of these application to their databases? - Number of application user license or something else.
Hello Everyone,I have been searching hard to get an answer on this question, I hope someone here can help me!Here is my situation:I am planning to build a website for them, that would be used for some event registration (by people outside my company). I also plan to use SQL Express Edition as the database backend for the site. Now this is where I have a question, can I use SQL Express and pay nothing? (It is free right?) There would be a maximum of 600 registrations over a period of 1 month. I don't expect more than 50 concurrent users. The administration side of the application would be used by internal employees (So, the application would be used by internal employees and external people). Where can I find more information about the license?I would be very thankful if someone can guide me on this.ASP_Newbie
