  • Question

  • I have two questions regarding properly licensing sql standard.

    If I have sql server 2016 standard on 2016 OS...do I need core licenses for both, or just SQL because its more expensive?

    Secondly, how does Licensing work if I have sql 2016 standard on a 2012 OS?

  • Hi

    I highly recommend Not to use the forum for LICENSE questions. It might look like we understand since we orders several dozens licenses ourselves, but I learned that this subject can be very complex and you better read the small letters and understand it 100% before you recommend someone.

    Moreover, there might be differences in locations, versions, editions, Machine resources, Various programs for partners or other close groups, and much more. These are matters of law, not just technical data.

    Therefore, I recommend to ask Microsoft license department directly.

    If you are in north america you need call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, and you can get more detail information from them.
