  • Question

  • Hi

    We have recently purchased 2 Microsoft data center 2012 license via IBM (IBM part No. – 00y6286).I need to know whether  we will be able to run multiple guest operating system  on a VM using a single datacenter license.

     Please suggest.

  • Hi,

    with datacenter Edition for Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 you may install unlimited VMs on the license Server.

  • You may install unlimited Windows Server OS VMs, the datacenter license does not cover client OSes.

    For non-Windows server OSes, you would go by the licensing for that OS in regards to the number you can install.
