thats nice to spend 6k on a processor license when you have 10 users in BES.
From reading the SQL 2005 License agreement, it sounds as if you need a SQL license for each user who is being provided a Service from an application connecting to the SQL server.
Microsoft wants to get everyone onto buying a Server license (not processor) and then adding user cal's. Bes would be the middleware in their current licensing agreement language.
