It looks like you're new here. Sign in or register to get started.
...Btw: I have read the rules for runtime license and found it very stringent regarding the extenability of objects an more users. Do you share this opinion?...
So just to be sure. If there is an installation with 100 Navision licenses for 200 different users (so only 50% of the users can work at the same time in Navision) the right choice is to license 200 SQL CALs. Is this correct?
I thought you could also do a runtime processor license. Then it makes sense if you plan to renew your maintenance contract every year, because you get your SQL Server upgrades included. Since 2008 SQL Server is 64 bit (except for the development version), you will get a good price and a usable version.
I believe they offer both standard and enterprise versions with NAV.
With the SQL 2008 runtime edition, I understand the named licences, but what is to stop
me creating a database for another application (not associated to NAV) and connecting users to that.
Because you would be in violation of your license agreement. License agreements are not about technical limitations. They are a legal agreement.

How do you know I haven't tried that before.
