WVD and licensing

Are there any license options to use a WVD license for multiple tenants? The questions comes from a setup where all users have an office 365 license but the tenant used for the WVD is running on a different Azure AD with Azure AD DS. Is there a way to avoid having to buy multiple WVD licenses for each user?

    Hi,

    Here's a pricing and licensing overview:
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/virtual-desktop/

    If you still have questions I would recommend to contact sales. See top of the page for contact references, or here:

    You can also contact Sales by chat.

    Best regards,
    Leon

    I have read that page. My problem is "You are eligible to access" - does that mean I can access a WVD with any login as long as it is my login if I have an office 365 license? Or, can I only access using the login with an office 365 license assigned?

    I have been talking to sales and they do not seem to have a consistent answer to this question.

    I have posted my question to them. But this is my problem: I have a login with an office 365 account which will give me access to WVD. Like jacob@mathieu.company .com

    Now I deploy a separate tenant and in the tenant I have a WVD deployed. Now WVD does not support azure AD B2B so I have to create another account for me on that tenant to access the WVD. Like jacob@companyTWO.com. This account does not have an office 365 license and thereby not a license for WVD. But it is my account and I do have a license attached to my jacob@mathieu.company .com account.

    Do I in this case have to buy an additional license for WVD? Can I link the 2 accounts from a license perspective? Or is there a scale like in Azure AD where there is a 1:5 relation on redundant licenses between to tenants?

    There is a technical limitation that does not allow a o365 license to be provisioned on multiple tenants.
