Licensing model for business

The Windows Server 2016 licensing model includes both Cores + Client Access Licenses (CALs). Each user and/or device accessing a licensed Windows Server Standard, Datacenter or Multipoint edition requires a Windows Server CAL or a Windows Server and a Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CAL. A Windows Server CAL gives a user or device the right to access any edition of Windows Server of the same or earlier version.

Each Window Server CAL allows access to multiple licenses of Windows Server. After the General Availability of Windows Server 2016, the business model for Standard and Datacenter editions will transition from processor-based to corebased licensing. Core-based licensing provides a more consistent licensing metric across multi-cloud environments, improves workload portability for Windows Server through benefits like Azure Hybrid Use Benefit, and helps remove friction across different licensing models.

Windows Server 2016 Servicing model:

It is important to understand the two servicing model available depending on the installation option. The Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) is the same model that we have had so far. When Microsoft released Windows Server, they provided 5 years of mainstream support and 5 years of extended support. The provided features were frozen in the time until the next Windows Server release. This is what LTSB provides.

Since Windows 10, Microsoft has developed a new servicing model called Current Branch (CB). Regularly (almost every 4-6 months) Microsoft provide servicing updates to Windows 10 to bring new functionalities and “force” to upgrade the build version. For companies, build upgrade imposed by CB is too recurrent so they need more time. Administrator can choose the Current Branch for Business to postpone the build upgrade for an additional time of 4 to 6 months. This is what is the Current Branch for Business (CBB).

The servicing model depends on the installation option:

Windows Server 2016 will have three separate options for installation — Server with Desktop Experience, Nano Server, and Server Core. You might be wondering if installation options matter when it comes to servicing. But they actually do, especially now that your choice of installation is going to be a driving force in regards to the servicing model you get in the end.

You might pick a Nano Server, and then work in the CBB. On the other hand, if you press the key for Server Core or GUI (Graphical User Interface) instead, you might get LTSB. In the case of Nano Server, during production, Software Assurance is necessary as this kind of servicing provides fresh features and functionality.

Now that you have a more well-rounded idea about Microsoft’s new licensing and servicing options for Windows Server 2016, you can form an opinion about it. There are many new things to consider, especially in terms of features and accessibility. Microsoft seems to be concentrating more on evolving the earlier standards to fit the new generation, and whether users respond to them the way they’re intended to remains to be seen.

How to Convert: Windows Server 2016 Evaluation version to OEM/Retail/Volume version (Licensed & Legal for Business)?

Not applicable for Brand New installation and no issue on straight forward activation, so skip it if you are not using evaluation version of the server!

You can freely convert between Windows Server Evaluation version to Retail-licensed version, Volume-licensed version, or an OEM version. The edition remains the same during this conversion. If you are starting with an evaluation version, convert it to the retail version first, and then you can inter-convert as described. To do this, from an elevated command prompt, run: slmgr /ipk <key>

Where <key> is the appropriate volume, retail, or OEM product/license key.

Open PowerShell/Command Prompt as Administrator and write and enter: slmgr /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
