Effects of SQL server standard core 2017 expiring

I am currently running SQL server standard core 2017 which was successfully licensed. The license is now expiring. Will services be affected if i do not renew my license in time? Would there be any effect to this?

How come your license expired for a product that only has 1 month of life?

Are you using SQL server standard core 2017 ?  It is still in RTM mode.

If you want to understand the license logic then you can read from -

Pawan, that's the licensing model for SQL Server 2012 and 2014.
For SQL Server 2017 the licensing model is different and you can learn about it here.

Unless it was a typo, the author only stated the version 2017.

My mistake. Not 2017.  It is a 2012 core edition.  It was licensed for 3 years.

Microsoft's SQL Server licensing model don't check for date validation what means that you'll be illegally using the license but it won't stop the SQL Server.

Great so you are using SQL Server 2012. It is my fav sql version.

I suggests do not take a risk. Renew your SQL Server license.

For license issues, please call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist.

Microsoft people will be the best persons to answer any kind of license related queries.. With Licensing related documents we can only get how the licenses can be calculated per core etc.

Not sure but heard that the SQL Services will be stopped, etc.

If you are working with Microsoft for renewing the licenses then you shouldn't worry.
I had the same work few years ago and it took months to renegotiate with them and during the renegotiation we were working without issues on our SQL Server instances.
