    Hello there,

    May be you can understand more about these licensing and then make an suggestion. When it comes to determining the right number of licenses, it's worth noting that you need a Windows Server CAL and an RDS CAL for each user or device.

    Windows CALs are for either user or device server access. RDS CALs are for remote desktop application server access.
    Some info here on windows CALS

    and RDS CALS here
