Abc, I can't claim to know the ABC's of SAS licensing, so your best bet is to ask your ever friendly, ever helpful SAS representative and iron out both the technical and licensing issues.

What I can tell you is that you can't normally install SAS server software on a SAS workstation.  So, you will likely need to purchase both Base SAS _AND_ SAS/Connect software for any PC's that you want to have talk to SAS/Connect on your SAS BI server.

Abc, best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!

I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
