Hi Experts,

I plan to buy and install Exchange Server 2013 within DAG.
Lets say I will have

2 CAS
2 HUB
2 MBX

The Windows OS will be 2012 R2 STD.
Is it correct that I don´t need Windows Enterprise 2012 R2 Edition for it ?

The Exchange version will be 2013 STD.

How many licenses do I need for Exchange 2013 ?

In this case normally you don't Need the Enterprise license for Windows. The two Exchange Server will replicate on their own, not Windows Cluster is required. And also the other roles not require Enterprise Servers.

I have seen, the exchange roles have changed, from 5 to 3.
What about the HUB TRANPORT role ? Where is it now integrated ?

What about the HUB TRANPORT role ? Where is it now integrated ?

integrated with the mailbox role

Does a CAS Server in Exchange 2013 need a Exchange Server 2013 STD license ?

for CAS server alone, standard is sufficient
enterprise allows up to 100 databases; standard only 5

this should answer a lot of questions around exchange licensing
