Server 2012 R2 free Hyper V


  • We have two new servers, each at different clients running Server 2012 R2 and I heard that Microsoft will allow us so spin up another Server 2012 R2 free in Hyper V. I wanted to post here to see how that works as I typically use VMWare but since this seems to be included I would like to use it. My question is once install the Hyper V role and create another 20120R2 VM will it ask me for a product key or will it activate on its own? Not sure how the licensing works for this yet. Can someone shed some light on how this works?
