Hello, need some advice on getting the right licensing in place for the wvd environment that we are trying to provision for one of the customer, sharing the overview 

  • Win 10 Enterprise Enterprise multi-session OS, customized it by installing required apps, generalized it and stored the image in the Azure image gallery. 
  • Session host VMs are created using the image as mentioned in above step. 
  • Azure AD Domain Service is used to cater to domain requirements of wvd. 
  • End customer accounts are provisioned in the Azure AD that are provided access to application groups of the host pool. 

Can anyone please confirm below in-order to get this to be called as 'compliant' from wvd's perspective?

 

  • Since its the Win 10 Enterprise Multi-session marketplace image that is customized further and used to provision the session host virtual machines - I think there is nothing that is needed to be done in terms of getting this complaint for using in the production environment. 
  • How about the users that are provisioned in the Azure AD and have been granted access to application groups of the host pool? I think they will AT-LEAST need to have the Microsoft 365-F3 license assigned to them (reference here), is that correct?
  • If point above is correct - would customer need to purchase Microsoft 365-F3 license separately and then get it assigned to users using Azure AD? 

Thanks in advance.

@bhushangawale: We have a pricing and licensing overview here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/.

 

If you still have questions I recommend to contact sales. See top of the page for contact references.

@Eva Seydl thanks for the response, have already taken a look at the link you have shared, however that does not clearly mentions questions asked above. can someone confirm this "would customer need to purchase Microsoft 365-F3 license separately and then get it assigned to users using Azure AD? "
