what licenses for replica and failover cluster
Posted on 2014-03-22
We are thinking about building a failover cluster with 2012 and/or a replica of the virtual machines. The server 2012 is onky used for hyper-v-role.
do i need a server license for the second (cluster) server? And in case of replication, do i need a license for the server i make the replication on too? I know, that it is possible to use the free "no-gui"-version. But we dont want that.
and what about the replicated virtual machines? If i make a replication on a server 2008 with exchange, do i need only one set of licenses (server-license+cals+exchange+cals like if i had one physical machine) or do i need one set of licenses for the first vitual machine and one set for the replication?
Thanks in advance
