Now, I know that we need to buy license for every Windows 2003 virtual machines. However, if I check here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/howtobuy/licensing/calc_2.htm Since my host server has 1 Processor buying Datacenter edition will allow me to run any number of VM’s My question is: What is the difference between 2003 Std edition and Datacenter Edition. In principal I need 2003 Std edition to run my applications. Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
