Open Server Core Licensing

Jump to solution

Hello,

Assume a 12 core server as an example. 

Do you know if you have an open server with a 2 core license and you add a 4 core license to it, does the box then get 6x licensed cores?

Regards,

Simon

The licenses are not additive. In fact, licensing terms prohibit a combination of 2 licenses on the same platform.

Well, number of physical cores wont change no matter the license you put on.
