Licensing Mode (64-bit)

SQL Server 2000

  This topic applies only to SQL Server 2000 (64-bit).

Use the Licensing Mode page of the Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 (64-bit) Installation Wizard to set the licensing mode that enables your clients to access SQL Server.


Examine the licensing agreement packaged with SQL Server 2000 to find the type and quantity of licenses that were purchased with the product. Then on the Licensing Mode page of the Installation Wizard, choose one of the following two options:

Per Seat

This licensing mode requires a license for the computer running SQL Server as well as a Client Access License (CAL) for each client device that connects to the server. An example of a client device is a personal computer, workstation, terminal, personal digital assistant, or mobile phone. A specified number of CALs are included with the server license and the server software. If you choose this option, next to Devices, type the number of CALs purchased for SQL Server.

Processor License

This licensing mode requires a single license for each CPU in the computer running SQL Server. A processor license includes access for an unlimited number of users to connect from a corporate local area network, a wide area network, or the Internet. If you choose this option, next to Processors, type the number of processor licenses purchased for SQL Server.
