As Microsoft Gold partners, we get Windows 8 Enterprise upgrade licences for previously purchase Windows 8 Pro licences, which I understand gives a VDA licence to each device we upgrade.
With the VDA licence, it states (PDF on VDA & VDA
"Each Windows Client SA / Windows VDA license provides the right to run up to four VMs concurrently on the PC, in addition to all other SA benefits, such as 90 day reassignment rights."
I rang Microsoft and they said I can put Windows on the VMs without the need to licence them as such I can use the same Enterprise key to activate them, but he couldn't provide and I haven't found any documented evidence that confirms this. Considering I've rang Microsoft to clarify things in the past and if I happen to speak to someone else on the same matter, I could get a different answer, I am hesitant to accept this as gospel.
Can anyone clarify this, as currently we are under the impression that only MSDN subscribers to use VMs and even then, they can only use them for development and testing?
