Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Services (RDS) offers two main types of Client Access Licenses (CALs):
RDS User CALs - for every user who accesses the server to use services such as file storage or printing, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access. Example: Employees access the corporate network using multiple devices or if there are simply more devices than users in the organization. In this case, you would need to purchase a user CAL for every user who accesses the server, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access.
RDS Device CALs - for every device that accesses your server, regardless of the number of users who use that device to access the server. Example: Employees share devices, such as shift workers, or there are likely more employees than devices in the organization. In this case, you would need to purchase a device CAL for every device used to access the server.
