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. Unfortuneatle my vendor has been a bit slow getting my vm environment up and running. At this point my trial version has expired and i need to order the licenses yesterday.
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
yes, there should be no problem with the new key - just add this key -no reinstall if it is standard edition as you have
