SQL Server 2022 Enterprise does not require Client Access Licenses (CALs) if it is licensed per core. Instead, the organization would need to purchase a license for each physical or virtual processor core in the server on which SQL Server 2022 Enterprise is installed. The number of licenses required depends on the number of processor cores in the server.
A minimum of 4 cores must be licensed.
