Affixing multiple OEM stickers to a single machine
Posted on 2014-04-07
I'm building a server for a client of mine which is going to run Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 + Hyper-V Role.
The client wants to have these virtual machines:
2x Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs (for various things, DC, Fileserver, Webserver)
2x Windows Server 2012 VM (for Exchange 2010, and some future task maybe VPN)
Normally I would purchase and affix an OEM sticker to the server to license it, but because this server is going to be a virtual machine host, I need to license more than one copy of the operating system.
Can I purchase and affix TWO OEM stickers? One of them will be a Server 2012 R2 OEM sticker and the other will be a Server 2012 OEM sticker. Each of the stickers entitles the customer to install 2x VMs of that OS each, and consider them properly licensed?
