Transfering Server licenses to new machine

Transfering Server licenses to new machine

Transfering Server licenses to new machine

I will be installing a POS system on a Virtual Machine temporarily. The POS system will be installed on windows server 2012 standard and also require Microsoft sql. When we get our new server which could be 6 months from now, would i be able transfer the Microsoft Licenses to that machine or will i have to purchase new licenses ?

RE: Transfering Server licenses to new machine

Are you referring to the SQL License or Server 2012 Standard License or the POS License key or all of the above?

RE: Transfering Server licenses to new machine

Providing your licenses are not OEM, you should be able to transfer. You are entitled to deploy 2 VM machines on a single Windows Server 2012 host, but you can have only once instance of SQL on VM or the host.
