I work at a small refurbishing company and we are looking to set up a WDS and a WSUS server to help deploy and update Windows across the many computers we refurbish.
I see the Essential version of Windows Server supports 25 users and 50 devices. My company has under 10 users, but on a given day we may install and update Windows on around ~30 devices. And then on the next day we may install and update Windows across an entirely new set of ~30 devices.
My concern is whether the 50 devices stated under Windows Server Essential refers to 50 devices total forever, or if its 50 devices at one time. Does anyone know? Thanks.
Windows Server 2019 Essentials comes with the CALs included so you don't have to worry about that. Your only concern should be in the case you go over 25 users/50 devices - then you'd need to upgrade to Standard.
