Exchange 2013 Licensing Question

I have a 3 member Exchange 2013 dag with 3 Exchange 2013 standard licenses. I want to add some DB's to balance my DAG out a bit. I see a limitation of 5 DB's for Exchange 2013 Standard. Does that mean I am limited to a total of 5 DB's accross the DAG or am I limited to a total of 15 since I have 3 licenses.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Brandon,

It means that you can only have 5 databases mounted in each server. No you cannot have 15 mounted in each server..but if you do not use as could have 5 in one, 5 in second, will 15. But normally if you want have a DAG, you want switchover between servers.

If you want to make switchover you will be limited to 5...because if you want to switchover to server2, or server3...and have databases mounted in some point..
