Hi 

Basically, in Windows Virtual Desktop we add the license in AAD, we go into the users and under the licenses section we add the necessary licenses to the desired user. For Multi-session windows 10 and O 365, we add the E3, E5 and also Office 365 Pro Plus licenses. So my question is if we take a windows server for WVD, where should we buy the RDS CAL license and how do we attach it to the user? what is the process?

@gadmin285 did you ever get an answer to this? I imagine a subscription based CAL via a CSP is the way to go but not 100% sure. 

I actually raised a support ticket and they helped me out. This is straight forward process @HoundDogZA 

@gadmin285 May I know the process. As we in the middle of POC & wants to check how RDS CAL will work with users having E1 license.
