Default BES Cal Question

Please Login to Remove!

So i am waiting for some more BES Cals to come in and out of curiosity i added another user that puts us over our limit. I was able to add the user and i got the message that notified me that i was over our license amount but then the user added into the BES Console. What gives? Can i now put him on a Blackberry by doing EA?

You can go one or two over your license limit - at least for a while - I've never gone a week over license limit.

FYI - If you use another database you can reuse all your cals.

what do you mean if you use another database you can reuse all your CALs?

Do you mean using a different SQL database or do you mean a different SQL instance?

And this violates your license agreement.

In other words, if you have two BES servers connected to two configuration databases (one each) and a single 100 pack of CALs, you can add the CALs to both servers, thus having room for 200 total users.

...as ||||||| mentioned, it will violate your licensing agreement and is ethically wrong. RIM has left a lot of holes open for people to bypass licensing agreements though (for example, upgrading major versions for free rather than paying, as they use the same keys).

to answer you initial question it doesn't cause any problems with the users or BES. the only issue is that you are infringing on licensing law. its your going to but them shoudln;t be an issue however its your call
