asked on

I want to install win 2012 r2 datacenter and hyper -v on dl585 with 4 16 core processors

I have a valid license number for 2012 r2 datacenter.

If for example I setup hyper-v and I want to create 50 windows 10 desktops will I also need licenses for those as well?

What about cals for the clients that will be connecting to these desktops?

Yes... You are correct the host will need 2-licenses..

Do you know if hyper-v will run persistent and non-pertsisent desktops like vmware's vdi?
It seems that Hyper-V supports both although i don't have 1st hand knowledge ...a bit of googling revealed a lot of articles on this subject...
