Licensing\CALS for Virtuals

504 Views
Last Modified: 2013-11-06
Hi and thanks for taking a moment. I am trying to set up  a virtual environment. I have a Windows 2008 server with 8 gb of RAM and 1TB of disk space, 64 bit that will be my physical host. It looks like I will run these with VMWare as my processor cannot support Hyper V.

I would like to run 4 virtuals on this. It is a non production environment. This is just for development/testing purposes. I would like to run 1 virtual for terminal services, 1 virtual for sql server(would like to do SQL Express if possible), 1 virtual as a normal file server, and 1 for an iis server. Each of these virtuals would run Windows Server 2008 as an OS

Question becomes can anybody tell me at least roughly what I need for licensing/CAL in terms of the virtuals for OS's, Terminal Services, and SQL I have read through some of the documentation but to me its still rather confusing any help would be greatly appreciated. Just trying to make sure I am doing this legally.

Can I run the 4 virtuals with Windows Server 2008 Standard as my physical and guest VM operating systems?
