We're looking at upgrading our server with a new version of SQL Server and I'm trying to work out how many user CALs would be needed. We've usually used processor licenses but are looking at users this time.

Some programs which access the database run as services on the database server, some under the system userid and some under another userid. Do services count differently or is it just by the user they will be running under?

Already looked at that, it's not clear. That's why I asked here.

All license arrangement are not clear ;-)
But
"To access a licensed SQL Server, each user or device must have a SQL Server CAL that is the same version or newer than the SQL Server software version being accessed."
So theoretically if a service perform some business logic under the hood then you need a CAL for it. But before buying, you should verify that with Microsoft, and then you could share with us what MS state :-)
