This:
Windows Server 2008 R2.
mail server hMailServer, which is able to do authorization against AD.
1C-Bitrix, which is also knows AD/LDAP authentication.

Want to make a single database users to login on the website and in the mail were identical. He Windows domain we do not need, NTLM, too.
I create the AD record InetOrgPerson. Mail and website picked up.

Now the question is: what about licensing? Do we need to buy any additional CALS? Are there any restrictions on the number of entries in AD or through network connections?

PS anticipating messages like "put Linux" report that the level of s/n does not allow us to hire qualified personnel to service Linux.

Very interesting.
I suspect that the number of users depends on the edition of win2k8.
And here's where to enter the CAL license in the server?

Try outsourcing. Once everything is set up and monitored remotely can be quite cheap.

Love it would be cheaper than a pack of radicals to buy from MS. How much and what will tell you any partner-sales Manager MS.

Windows Server 2008 R2 CAL is a license for the number of connections to the server, to any services built into Windows Server.
\r
Here is the information where to put them: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/nl/windowsserver2008r2general/thread/6826da5c-e12e-4d59-9a95-a4bb4bf83b87 In three words — CAL licenses represent a document confirming their presence.
\r
In the delivery of the servers is some number of CAL licenses Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard give 5pcs, for the rest I do not know. The CAL number for a specific server must be equal to the number of computers and servers in your network.
\r
I must say that some services are licensed advanced Windows Server, such as Terminal Services, this does not preclude the need for CAL. AD separately license is not necessary.

Recently was looking for an answer: How to license IIS.
Found that the license from MS is required if the connection to the server is not anonymous, i.e. has been authorized MS Server.
It turns out if you do not use authorization MS the license server with the required service.

I think the most correct option to call to any integrator from whom you buy software. There can usually explain on the fingers, with links to documents.
Doesn't hurt to ask.

> CAL is not required:
\r
for users or devices that access instances of the server software only through the Internet without authentication or other individual identification
\r
ie is not your case and you either need a CAL if the user observable quantity, or a Windows Server External Connector

Called softkey. The correct answer is announced Busla: for internal users, if they have account in the software, you need to buy CAL. No difference from MS software is spinning or not. However, technical limitations do not exist, it is purely a legal issue. Discount from MS starts from 500 licenses.
