OEM License policy

Hi folks ,

We are considering a OEM license instead a full version and the question is if we can use the OEM license only in that specific server or if we can reuse the license in other new one (from the same manufacter - same years ahead ) but obviously deactivating the old one (server - hw) ?

Thanks in advance

If you are talking Microsoft OEM then that license is for that particular server only and isn't valid as a virtualized guest (as far as I know).

Your best option is to go with Enterprise so you get 4 licenses. Enterprise is about $2500CDN and a single Windows Server STD is about $900...
