  • Multi-processor license on Server 2003 standard?

    I am looking for confirmation here because I had a customer debate me on this issue.

    Server 2003 Standard Edition supports two physical CPUs. We I have a server with dual Xenon CPUs. Is no additional licensing requirements to make use of both CPUs?

    In System Manger shows up as ACPI multi-processor.

    Thanks.

    Windows licensing is based either on the number of Servers or on the number of concurrent client connections. So you can safely continue with existing licenses.

      What has this got to do with RobWs question?


      Rob, this may be what you are after. http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/h...multicore.mspx

      Therefore, 2 x Quad Cores can be dropped into XP, SBS or Win2K3 Std.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2
