I am not ashamed to admit it but Microsoft licensing confuses me quite a bit. I thought I would ask here first before calling MS directly.
Here is the scenario, I have a very old terminal server in my office that my accountants use to run software to connect to our main financial server (which is intentionally isolated from everything in the network). I would like to replace it with a new terminal server running 2008 R2 Standard. They also use Office on the existing server for Excel and the occasional Word document.
I think I'm okay with the RDS licensing, I only need 5 licenses so I'll just buy a pack of them, but I have no idea what to do about the Office licensing. I keep reading conflicting answers on whether or not I need a volume license for it. I've never dealt with Office licensing before so I'm lost. We do not have an Open License agreement or software assurance thing in my office if that matters.
