What does 2CPU/2VM mean RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We bought Windows SVR STD 2012 R2 X64 English 1Pk DSP OEI DVD 2CPU/2VM update media included.

    End Item PN: P73-06165.

    My question is, what does 2VM mean? does it mean that we are licensed to run 2 virtual machines on it, or install 2 instances of Windows server on 2 virtual machines?

  • The virtual instance granting license entitles you to install Two Windows Server VMs without purchasing additional licenses.

    You must contact MSFT Licensing for the proper key for the two VMs.

    This does not limit the number of VMs you can run (your hardware limits that), it only applies to windows server OS license for the VMs.
