Buy Device CAL for Microsoft Windows Server 2019 used
For the Standard- or Datacenter edition of Microsoft Windows Server 2019, in addition to the licenses for the server cores, a client access license is also required for each end device via which the server services are to be accessed: For this purpose, there is the Windows Server 2019 Device CAL, which gives a specific computer (PC, laptop, etc.) registered for this purpose the corresponding access rights.
The core licenses for Windows 2019 Server Standard or Datacenter do not include user rights, so these must be purchased separately in the form of a Device CAL, each user who is authorized to use the end device equipped with it can then use it to access the Windows server.
Used Device CALs for Windows Server 2019 are not only available from Wiresoft at a lower price than the client access licenses offered as new in the software trade, they are also available individually instead of in scales. These used Device CALs have the same functionality as the Device Client Access Licenses for Windows Server 2019 available in the official Microsoft Volume Licensing Program.

Information about licensing Windows Server 2019 with CALs
For the Standard and Datacenter editions, Microsoft License Management offers the alternative option of licensing Windows Server 2019 by individual cores/processor cores; in doing so, this must be supplemented by endpoint (or user) licensing or. Because such CALs included in the server license are intended exclusively for administrators and not for the typical use of the Windows server services, so that for this each individual end device requires a corresponding access license (Device CAL). This Device CAL must correspond to the identical or a higher Windows server version - more details about the scenarios below.
Thus, only this device-specific client access license entitles the user to use the Windows server functions of version 2019 on a Windows-enabled end device. Apart from the access rights for the client/server environment of the Windows Server 2019, the CAL does not contain any other software that must be installed first.
What are the benefits of Device CALs for Windows Server 2019 Standard- and Datacenter edition?
First of all, the CAL-based licensing of Windows Server 2019 allows flexible and needs-based rights management for the computers in question. Especially used access licenses for devices offer a more economical alternative for SMBs to use the Windows server services: This is because there are no restrictions due to scales here, so that client access licenses only need to be purchased for as many employees as are actually required. The Microsoft licensing model offers a total of two types of CALs for Windows Server 2019:
- Device CAL for Windows Server 2019: this gives server access rights to a dedicated endpoint device (PC, Laptop, Tablet, Phone)
- User CAL for Windows Server 2019: this gives server access rights to a dedicated user
It is also possible to use user CALs and device CALs in parallel.
Please note version compatibility for Device CALs for Windows Server 2019!
The Device CAL for Windows Server 2019 not only equips an end device with the access rights for Windows Server 2019, it also includes access to older versions such as 2016 (downgrade). This gives the Server Device CAL 2019 an advantage over older Device CAL versions that apply to a previous version of Windows Server 2019, because such a version cannot be used to access the Windows Server version 2019 (upgrade). Even though there are currently no more recent Device CALs for Windows Server than the 2019 version, care should still always be taken to ensure that the server license and client access license are compatible.
What else is important when licensing Windows Server 2019 with a used Device CAL?
As mentioned above, the Device CAL always grants access rights to the Windows Server 2019 to only one single end device (Device). After the registration of the CAL has been completed on exactly this device, the license can no longer be transferred to another computer. It is also not possible to change the CAL type and use a Device CAL as a User CAL. However, it is permitted to use Device CALs and Device CALs in parallel for the use of Windows Server 2019.
These provisions of the Microsoft CAL licensing system are intended to prevent improper access to Windows Server 2019. Thus, they provide greater security for a company and its data, as unlicensed or third-party endpoints cannot access the data.
What are the differences between Device CAL and User CAL for Windows Server 2019?
In terms of functionality, a Device CAL for Windows Server 2019 generally does not differ from the User CAL. However, each offers typical advantages due to the type of access to the Windows server access: The number of workstations in a company and also the workflow in which the Windows server is accessed play a role here: In some SMEs, several employees take turns using a single end device, e.g. in shift work, to access the Windows server, while in other work environments users take turns using completely different end devices for this purpose.
The single Windows-capable end device authorized by the device license can therefore be used for server access by all employees who have the possibility or permission to do so: If the licensed end device is a mobile laptop or tablet, the respective employee can then also access the Windows server locally independently - e.g. on the road or at homeOffice. The Device CAL can therefore also be used on the move.
Conclusion on Device CALs
So which type of client access license for Windows Server 2019 in a company offers more advantages in use differs from case to case. The number of employees using the Windows server in relation to the predominant type of access via the existing end devices plays a role here: as soon as the majority alternately uses a specific mobile end device or a stand-alone device to access the Windows server, the Device CAL offers more advantages.
Whether the Device CAL for Windows Server 2019 offers more possible uses than the User CAL is therefore determined by the typical company workflow in each case. Knowledge of this should form the basis for the choice of CAL when purchasing suitable client access licenses for Windows Server 2019.
