Clarification on Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Virtual licenses
It's my understanding that on Server 2008 R2 Enterprise you are licenced to run 4 virtual machines. Am I correct in assuming that the virtual machines have to be on the same physical host? For example if I have two physical servers (A and B) both with Server 2008 R2 Enterprise licenses I can install 4 virtual servers on A and 4 on B. I can't however install 2 on A and 6 on B.
In a nutshell I currently have server A which hosts 4 virtual machines and server B which is my backup server and doesn't host any virtual machines. If I want to add another virtual server to host A I will have to buy another license, I can't use the license from server B.
Is this correct?
