Can you help me with my software licensing question?
As I understand it, you can do:
Windows 2008 + Hyper-V role
Windows Hyper-V Server (which is free I believe)
Windows 2008 Core + Hyper-V Role
I'm assuming that Core + Hyper-V and Hyper-V Server have the smallest footprint, and therefore better performing, less patching, etc. What other trade-offs/compromises would there be compared to the full Windows + Hyper-V role?
However, I've read somewhere that Enterprise comes with four Enterprise 2008 (4) guest VM licenses (I think Standard gives you two (2)).
Can someone clarify these statements?
Forgot one other thing: if you buy an Enterprise license, can you install Core + Hyper-V or Hyper-V Server to take advantage of the smaller footprint, but also utilize the four (4) Standard guest licenses* that you're granted with the Enterprise license?
