Hi Experts,

I recently join an  organisation and I need to check if the sql servers are licensed or not( I have no experience in SQL licensing at all, all I know is they are supposed to be Core base licenses )  . any idea why  I get disabled  when I run “  SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('License Type')

I have SQL 2008 r2 and 2012 in the environment.

Thanks

I believe from SQL 2005 and on, the license information isn't tracked inside the application any longer.  It's more of an honor system, and you are expected to keep track of the licenses and have paper licenses available for your systems.
