Here’s a list of common mistakes service providers make when reporting SPLA. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
- Reporting only (1) 2 core pack (must report a minimum of 4 cores)
- Office without RDS
- CRM without SQL
- SharePoint without SQL
- Reporting SharePoint Enterprise without reporting Standard
- Miss combination of Windows and SQL
- Agreement without Windows Server
- Reporting SQL processors on a recently signed agreement
- Using SQL Web to support a line of business application
- Reporting less than $100 on a recently signed agreement.
I understand there are many more, but this is a list you can control month end and month out. More difficult licensing errors to correct include: hosting SPLA on servers that are also consumed internally; installing SPLA software on hardware you don’t control or have access; and using System Center to manage both internal and external facing applications.
Correct it now before it’s too late.
