We're migrating to Exchange 2007 and would like to take advantage of the new Standby Continuous Replication in SP1. Can we install the same license on the production and standby servers or do we need separate licenses for each?

Thanks gupnit... Although they allude to SCR being supported I cannot see where it explicitly indicates the existing license can be used on both the production and standby server.

Am I missing something that you're seeing?

Hi
SCR is there in Standard Edition of SP1.
If in SCR the Source Server is Enterprise Edition, then the Target/Standby will also have to Enterprise Edition 2007 SP1. Same goes for Standard
Sorry I should have clarified
Thanks

hi gubnit.... Thanks for the reply. My question isn't about functionality or which product does which and is needed with which, but is about licensing. Do we need another separate / distinct license for a standby server or can we use the same license for both the production and standby?

I meant the License will be requried for both, I was emphasizing on the license mix and match !!
Thanks
