Microsoft Licensing for SmartStruxure Report Server

Issue

How many SQL client licenses to run SQL if SQL 2008 is used to run Report Server?

When Report Server is installed, is there a connection between SQL and the Enterprise Server.

Product Line

SmartStruxure Solution

Environment

  • Report Server
  • Licensing

Cause

Licenses must be purchased for supporting software (OS, SQL, etc).

Resolution

Because SQL and Report Server have to be running on the same machine, there is only one sequel user that requires licensing. 

There is no connection between the Enterprise Server and SQL when Report Server is installed.
