    vCentre license for Disaster Recovery site using VMWare CRM

    Nikhil Patwa Expert

       

      Hello,

       

       

      Want to know if I can utilise the same vCentre server licenses plus licenses of all the other VMWare utilities like vMotion, HA, DRS and the ESX host licenses for my Disaster Recovery Site using the VMWare Site Recovery Manager. All my servers at the disaster recovery site will be switched off and will only be powered on during the course of a disaster at the production site and because of this am asking whether we can use the same VMWare licenses at the disaster recovery site.

       

       

      I know VMWare licensing is per processor based and also the number of servers at the disater recovery site will be less compared to the production site but all the funtionalities.

       

       

      Please assist me in licensing.

       

       

      Regards
