Can you help me with my software licensing question?
Can I run a 1 processor license of SQL Server on a 2 processor system without breaking the license ? I'm not talking about cores but two physical cpu's, 8 cores total.
As I understand it the licensing is basically an "honor system", I can install it and it will run on all cores, however can I legally install a 1 processor license and then just select four cores and that would be fine by Microsoft ?
Or do I have to have a two processor license just because the server happens to have two physical processors ?
