Server 2008 R2 Action pack license allows use of passive server?
Posted on 2010-11-08
Hello, I'm looking at migrating from SBS2008 / Exchange 2007 to Server 2008 R2 / Exchange 2007.
However this is a licensing question.
We are subscribed to the microsoft action pack and have a license for Server 2008 R2 enterprise and a license for Exchange 2007.
I want to set up our new server so it uses a Passive failover server.
This means another physical serve that will take over if the main one fails.
I'm wondering if I can just use the 1 license for Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2007, as the second server is just a failover server.
It's my understanding that if the license is SA (Software assured) this is possible, but I'm not sure if the Action Pack licenses are SA.
Has anyone done something like this?
