I have a physical 2012 R2 server with one VM running on it currently (2012 R2 Domain Controller), i want to add a second VM, this one will be 2012 R2 with SQL Server 2012 for running the accounting program Exchequer.
The server has 64Gb of ram so there should be more than enough according to the spec requirements. I have a couple of questions, firstly, please can I confirm that licensing for the 2nd 2012 R2 OS is covered by the original host license (as long as no added services are running on the host)? Secondly, are there any special considerations for running SQL on a VM or is it just a case of installing as if it were a stand alone physical server?
Many thanks
