Connecting Windows server Std to an existing domain with windows server essentials, only to be a file server, do I need a license (cals) for windows server std or does server essentials manage the accesses?

The new file server will need Cals

A Windows Server CAL is a license that grants access Windows Server. CALs are used in conjunction with Microsoft Windows Server OS licenses to allow Users and/or Devices to access and utilize the services of that windows server
- User CALs allow a single user access to Windows Server from an unlimited number of devices
- Device CALs allow an unlimited number of users to access Windows Server from a single device

Hi Dave,
As the domain controller is a windows server essentials and has 25 users, do I still need extra licensing for users to access server std?
