Virtual Machine licensing on Windows Server 2012 Standard RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I purchase Windows Server 2012 Standard and I want to run two virtual machines running 2008 standard R2 on the same server, will I need to purchase additional licensing since they are not Windows Server 2012 virtual machines? The server will have 2x Intel Xeon processors.

  • You can downgrade the license instances you are allowed with Server 2012.  You will need to contact your licensing agent to get the media and license keys
