Hello! We've got our Filemaker Server 16 up and running now on an older pc with Windows Server 12 R2 on it, but we'd like to upgrade to a better server pc and get Windows Server 2016 on it, but I don't understand how the licensing works. The fellow I spoke to said we have to buy a license for 16 cores minimum (So 8 2-core licenses) and we'd need user CAL licenses for every person who wants to use the filemaker database. That sounds crazy to me, I didn't think we'd need over a dozen licenses in order to set up a small home-built server. Can anyone here help me figure this out? I haven't bought a Windows Server license before and I don't know how it all works. I didn't build the server that it's running on, nor did I buy the licenses. What licenses do I actually need? I'm the only one who will be accessing the server directly.
Thanks guys. I just want to say that everyone here has been super helpful and extremely patient with me as I try to get this going.
