Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Services CAL

Remote Desktop Services - is the capability of the Windows Server 2019 operating system and able to provide connectivity to end users to get access Windows desktops and applications remotely including delivering individual virtualized applications, providing secure mobile and remote desktop access, and providing end users the ability to run their applications and desktops from the cloud. On Windows Server 2019 RDS each Remote Desktop session is independent, with the host operating system managing without conflict between multiple users contending for shared resources. There are two type of RDS (remote desktop services) cal:

  • RDS Device CAL - 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.

  • RDS User CAL - 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.

The differences between the type of Remote Desktop Services CAL

When you use the Per Device model: a temporary license is issued the first time a device connects to the RD Session Host. The second time that device connects, as long as the license server is activated and there are available RDS CALs, the license server issues a permanent RDS Per Device CAL.

When you use the Per User model: licensing is not enforced and each user is granted a license to connect to an RD Session Host from any number of devices. The license server issues licenses from the available RDS CAL pool or the Over-Used RDS CAL pool. It’s your responsibility to ensure that all of your users have a valid license and zero Over-Used CALs—otherwise, you’re in violation of the Remote Desktop Services license terms.

An example of where one would use the Per Device model would be in an environment where there are two or more shifts using the same computers to access the RD Session Host(s). The Per User model would be best for environments where users have their own dedicated Windows device to access the RD Session Host(s).

To ensure you are in compliance with the Remote Desktop Services license terms, track the number of RDS Per User CALs used in your organization and be sure to have enough RDS Per User CALs installed on the license server for all of your users.
