DOC CAL and Session CAL for single user

We have both DOC and Session CAL's and we controle the access to documents using folder security. Suppose I have assigned a DOC CAL to User A for document 'D1' that is kept in folder F1. We have another document 'D2' in Folder F2. Now that the user is added in folder security of both F1 and F2. will he be able to access both the documents. D1 through DOC CAl and D2 through Session CAL.

Is this authorized (to have a user who has both Doc CAL and session CAL on the same server) or will server detect that the user has DOC CAL assigned to him  and will not assign a sesson cal to him while he tries to acccess D2 and he will not be able to access D2.

Re: DOC CAL and Session CAL for single user

AFAIK, doc CAL is associated with a specific document you set to. Hence, even if some one has doc CAL available, since the particular document is not set to use the same, it would instead use the session CAL.

Re: DOC CAL and Session CAL for single user

If I have assigned a DOC CAL to some user for doc d1, would he then consume two cals(one doc and one sessions) by opening two documents d1 and d2 that he has access to.
