Hi,

i'm fairly new to VDI. So i have a lot of questions/doubts concerning licensing (Microsoft doesn't make it easy :-))

So i"m traying to setup a VDI server for 5 users.

I have my Server license, my Windows CAL's , my RDS CAL's, etc..

So server wise i'm okay.

 

So, now,

What do i need for my 5 Windows 10 VDI "computers", licensing wise ?

 

Windows 10 OEM ?

Windows 10 PRO full ?

Windows 10 Enterprise ?

Windows 10 PRO with SA ?

 

Any advice is welcome.

Hi @Jo_Lambrecht 

 

Could you describe your environment? This is a WVD Forum so I am going to presume you are using Windows Virtual Desktop. All you need for Windows Virtual Desktop are either of the following licenses:

 

  • Microsoft 365 E3/E5
  • Microsoft 365 A3/A5/Student use benefits
  • Microsoft 365 F3
  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium**
  • Windows 10 Enterprise E3/E5
  • Windows 10 Education A3/A5
  • Windows 10 VDA per user

If not, then this probably needs moving to the RDS Forum
