@JasGot said in Is there a MS Licensing expert here regarding remote OSes?:
They have an app that does not run well over WAN or VPN. Some users just had their desktop PCs swapped out for Laptops so they can work from home. The problem is, "They have an app that does not run well over WAN or VPN".
So I need them to RDP to an RDS Host or Windows 10 VM onsite.
I am looking for a detailed path for licensing. The new laptops have OEM Windows 10 Pro.
The problem I have with the PDF below, is that I am too literal. Meaning, when someone says pick a number between 1 and 10, I see the only options as choosing a number from the following: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. Most people see 1 and 10 as additional options; I don't.
So, for example, is this statement in the PDF referring to the off-site laptop, or the OS inside the VM on the Host located in the main office?
Generally, and with limitations found below, you must have one of the following licenses to run and access a virtual
machine running Windows 10:
What I need to see, to be certain I am compliant, is a statement like this:
The VM OS must be one of: Blah Blah, Blah Blah, or Blah Blah and the remote OS accessing the VM must be: Blah Blah, Blah Blah, or Blah Blah.
When it comes to licensing, I accept no ambiguity.
If the user is properly licensed, it doesn't matter what they use at home.
