I installed sql 2012 standard trial version on a physical box with dual quad core cpu's (8 cores). The intenion is to move the database on a virtual server with 4 virtual Cpu.

My question is will i be able to reinstall the licenses seemlessly when that time comes. and what about the downgrade of cpu's? if i Purchase licenses for the 4 core Is the licensing rigid in it core requirement and can i get away with a 4 core requirement for the month that i will be using it on the the higher core server? thanks
