We are looking to use Hyper-V with extended replication (Which is only available with 2012 R2) - Due to this, we have to purchase new OS licenses to upgrade our 2012 servers to 2012 R2..

I'm wondering if we can use our existing 2012 licenses for a server that will be on the receiving end of an extended replication? has anyone tried this?

I'm guessing it should work - but I also guessed that the 2012 to 2012 R2 upgrade would be free, and I was wrong with that...!

Thanks

Yes you can use your existing 2012 licenses for a server that will be on the receiving end of an extended replication.
