Hi All,
If I want to add a second processor to my W2k03 server (standard edition) Do I need another license from Microsoft?  If so, is it a different license than what I already have?  Thanks.  Scott

    If the server is just running Windows 2003 Server then no additional license is required.
    As for the applications - that could be a different matter. SQL can be licensed per processor for example, as can Oracle.

    We are also Running Microsoft SQL 2000 server.  Does that have a licensing issue?  Thanks.  Scott

    Accepted Solution

    That will depend on how the licenses were purchased. You will need to check what licenses you already own.
