2008 R2 Enterprise host - licensing support for standard
Posted on 2011-09-08
I understood with 2008 R2 Enterprise that I could run four 2008 licensed guest 2008 VM's. I installed 2008 Enterprise as a host and then created a 2008 Standard VM guest thinking that I could use one of the four licenses but it won't accept the Enterprise serial number that I used to create the host. Do all the 4 VM's have to be 2008 Enterprise if the host is 2008 Enterprise? I would prefer to run 2008 Standard VM's if possible.
