Installing Standard Edition on a server having more than 8 cores RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    BizTalk 2013 R2 Standard Edition is limited to 8 cores.

    Is it possible to install it on a server having more than 8 cores at all?

    Best regards

  • I believe it works as follows:

    You CAN install a BizTalk Server Standard edition on a Server having more than 8 cores, but:

    - BizTalk will only utilize 8 cores, even though more are present

    - You will be charged for all cores, even though not all of them are used *

    In other words: Don't do it!!

    * This was the case back when BizTalk was licensed pr. CPU, and I haven't heard anything about this fact being different now.
