How to use Windows server 2012R2 DataCenter License in Visualization environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Please go through below scenario-

    we have 5 running VM windows server 2008r2 std licenses (using license Key) and 4 windows  7 on one  Esxi  host.

    Now we have to deploy Windows server 2012R2 dataCenter on same host. (We have volume licenses for each)

    My query is how to use  license key on each windows server 2008 r2 std and windows server 2012R2  datacenter so that all running servers become free and we can deploy 2-3 more windows server 2008R2 std on this same host.

    Will already deployed license key work on Windows server 2008R2 std or  we have to change the key after installation of windows server 2012R2  datacenter on one host ? If yes then what we need to do?

    (As per my knowledge, in windows server 2012R2 datacenter, we can deploy n numbers of VM on one host, )

    Waiting for your reply.
