Microsoft allow end customers who licensed under Enterprise Agreement and paying for Software Assurance to remotely access customer dedicated servers from 3rd party PC’s. this is one of the Software Assurance Benefits (SAB) , the definition as it appear in the Product Terms is as follow:
Roaming Rights: An SA benefit that permits the Primary User of a Licensed Device certain access and use rights. The Primary User may use a Qualifying Third Party Device to
- remotely access and use permitted Instances or copies of the software running on Servers dedicated to Customer’s use
- locally use a permitted Instance or copy in a Virtual OSE, or
- locally access a permitted Instance or copy of the software on a USB drive via Windows to Go, in each case solely for work-related purposes while the user is not on Customer’s premises.
No other user may use the software under the same License at the same time. Despite anything to the contrary in Customer’s volume licensing agreement, Qualified Desktops and Devices do not include any Qualifying Third Party Devices from which Customer’s users access and use the software and any (other) enterprise product solely under Roaming Rights.
the major change with regards to roaming rights is that starting February 1st. Windows roaming rights are retired.
customer who have active Enterprise Agreement (EA) can still use those rights, but New and Renew customers after this date will no more be entitled to Windows roaming rights.
