Systems Center suite 2012 licensing
I've got some questions relating to licensing the forthcoming systems center 2012 suite of products and EES.
I think it's the case that the EES desktopplatform org wide SKU includes Enterprise CALs which cover management
of client devices for things like SCCM, SCOM, Forefront.
So assuming desktop 'clients' are covered that way ? Is it the case the actual install of the systems center server products does not require licensing ?
So if you have virtualized SCCM, SCOM management servers and a dedicated DPM 2012 box they don't require VLK under EES ?
It's only when you want to manage w2k8 servers as 'clients' using the management servers that you need to purchase the Standard or Datacenter ML's ?
How does that work for things like DPM agents in a virtual/physical environment and using SCVMM 2012 to create VM's under hyper-v ?
Sorry for sounding hopelessly confused.
