    Hello

    I have a question regarding my situation with my employer and the EULA currently we violate the EULA with Server 2008 Exchange 2010 and Antivirus products i have written an e-mail to my managers explaining the situation and i have the e-mails now in my personal records the company seems reluctant to spend any money on software renewals. Basicly if we fail a software audit who will be accountable Me or my employer?

    Thank You

    Your employer afaik, typically at the Operations or Technical Director level. Notifying your manager is the correct course of action imo. Keep a copy of the e-mail just incase. Having done a recent software audit myself I've pointed out similar things which have been passed upstream and I believe are being sorted.

    Generally the CFO is ultimately accountable for licensing compliance.

    You won't fail a Microsoft audit unless you grass yourself up. It works on the honour system. They ask you to fill in a spreadsheet and as long as number of licenses in use (that you tell them about) < number of licenses they have on record then you're golden.

    Sleep easy.

    How are you currently breaking the EULA? To use the software you must have purchased a licence for it to get it installed and working?

    What licencing agreements do you have in place? Open? Select?
