Mre infrmatin is at Vlume Activatin A number f technlgies are available in Windws Server 2012 R2 t simplify the task f cnfiguring the distributin and management f an rganizatin s vlume sftware licenses. These technlgies include: The Vlume Activatin Services server rle Vlume Activatin Services is a server rle in Windws Server 2012 (r later editins) that enables yu t autmate and simplify the issuance and management f Micrsft sftware vlume licenses fr a variety f scenaris and envirnments. With Vlume Activatin Services, yu can install and cnfigure the Key Management Service (KMS) and enable Active Directry-based Activatin. Key Management Service (KMS) KMS is a rle service that allws rganizatins t activate systems within their netwrk frm a server where a KMS hst has been installed. With KMS, IT prs can cmplete activatins n their lcal netwrk, eliminating the need fr individual cmputers t cnnect t Micrsft fr prduct activatin. KMS des nt require a dedicated system, and it can be chsted n a system that prvides ther services. By default, vlume editins f Windws 8 (r later editins) and Windws Server 2012 (r later editins) cnnect t a system that hsts the KMS service t request activatin. N actin is required frm the user. Active Directry-based Activatin Active Directry-based Activatin is a rle service that allws yu t use Active Directry Dmain Services (AD DS) t stre activatin bjects, which can further simplify the task f maintaining vlume activatin services fr a netwrk. With Active Directry-based Activatin, n additinal hst server is needed, and activatin requests are prcessed during cmputer startup. Any cmputers running Windws 8 (r later editins) and Windws Server 2012 (r later editins) with a Generic Vlume License Key (GVLK) that are cnnected t the dmain will activate autmatically and transparently. They will stay activated as lng as they remain members f the dmain and maintain peridic cntact with a dmain cntrller. Activatin takes place after the licensing service starts. When this service starts, the cmputer running Windws 8 (r later editins) and Windws Server 2012 (r later editins) RD cntacts AD DS autmatically, receives the activatin bject, and activates withut user interventin.

11 Vlume Licensing reference guide fr Windws Server 2012 R2 Frequently Asked Licensing Questins (FAQ) 1. Hw are Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard and Datacenter editins licensed? Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard and Datacenter editins will cntinue t have the same licensing mdel as Windws Server 2012 Standard and Datacenter editins. The editins are differentiated by virtualizatin rights nly (tw OSEs fr Standard and unlimited OSEs fr Datacenter). A single license cvers up t tw physical prcessrs. Client Access Licenses (CALs) are required fr each user r device accessed. The Windws Server 2012 related CALs prvide entitlement t access and use Windws Server 2012 R2 functinality. 2. What is the difference between Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard editin and Windws Server 2012 R2 Datacenter editin? Bth Standard and Datacenter editins prvide the same set f features; the differentiatr is the number f Virtual Operating System Envirnments (VOSE). A Standard editin license entitles up t tw VOSEs n up t tw prcessrs (subject t the VOSE use rights utlined in the Prduct Use Rights dcument fr Vlume Licensing r End User License Agreement fr ther channels). A Datacenter editin license entitles an unlimited number f VOSEs n up t tw prcessrs. 3. Will the Windws Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 licensing mdels cntinue t be aligned? Yes. Bth Windws Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 have similar licensing structures. These include tw editins: Standard and Datacenter. Single licenses that cver up t tw physical prcessrs. Editins differentiated by virtualizatin rights nly (tw fr Standard; unlimited fr Datacenter). (Client Access Licenses [CALs] will cntinue t be required fr access t Windws Server 2012 R2 servers and management access licenses cntinue t be required fr endpints being managed by System Center.) 4. What are sme f the features available in Windws Server 2012 R2 Datacenter and Standard editins? There are a variety f new features in Windws Server 2012 R2 Datacenter and Standard editins. Here are just a few examples: Enterprise-class virtual machine density, perfrmance, and mbility with best-in-class perfrmance and scale fr Micrsft wrklads High-perfrmance file-based strage n cst-effective, industry-standard hardware with inbx strage virtualizatin and tiering Highly available, in-bx hybrid netwrking fr bridging physical and virtual netwrks in a multi-tenant envirnment and acrss premises Prtectin and recvery f assets fr all yur wrklads with simple and affrdable disaster recvery ptins Flexible remte access t crprate resurces frm virtually anywhere and n any device while helping prtect crprate infrmatin 5. Hw d I determine which Windws Server 2012 R2 editin is right fr me? Because there is feature parity between Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard and Datacenter editins, yur decisin will be based n yur virtualizatin strategy; virtualizatin rights are the nly differentiatr between editins. If yur strategy calls fr a highly virtualized envirnment, Datacenter editin will prvide yu with ptimum flexibility because it allws fr unlimited virtualizatin. This editin allws yu the elasticity t add and mve virtual OSEs acrss Datacenter licensed servers withut needing t track the virtual OSE cunt n that server. If yu d nt plan n a highly virtualized envirnment, April

12 Vlume Licensing reference guide fr Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard editin is the right prduct fr yur needs. If yu purchase Standard editin tday but find yu need t expand the virtualizatin capacity f yur licensed server, yu can d ne f the fllwing: 1. Purchase additinal Standard editin licenses and assign them t the same physical server giving yu the rights t run additinal instances f Windws Server. The server must have the apprpriate number f licenses assigned t it t ensure cverage f all f the virtual OSEs that are running at any given time. 2. Purchase a Sftware Assurance Step-up license t Datacenter editin, changing the license t a higher editin that allws unlimited virtual OSEs. T use this benefit, yur underlying license must have Sftware Assurance. 6. If I have a Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard editin license, hw can I increase my virtualizatin rights? With the Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard editin licensing mdel, yu can grw yur virtualizatin envirnment by either buying a step-up license t Datacenter editin if yu have Sftware Assurance, r by simply buying additinal Standard editin licenses and assigning them t the same physical server. The server must have the apprpriate number f licenses assigned t it t ensure cverage f all f the virtual OSEs that are running at any given time. Fr example, if yu have a twprcessr server and want t run a ttal f fur VOSEs, yu can purchase tw Standard editin licenses and assign them t the same server. Additinal examples are shwn in the fllwing table. Number f Standard editin licenses n a single server Ttal number f VOSEs Hw d I calculate the number f licenses I need fr a server? The number f licenses yu will need depends n the number f physical prcessrs n the server and the number f server instances that yu will be running. (This applies nly fr Standard editin because Datacenter editin allws fr unlimited VOSEs.) The larger f these tw numbers determines the number f ttal licenses required. First, determine the number f physical prcessr licenses: Each license cvers up t tw physical prcessrs, s t determine the number f licenses needed t fully license a physical server, just cunt the number f physical prcessrs in the server and divide that number by tw. This tells yu the number f licenses that yu will need. (Nte: The number f cres n the physical prcessr is irrelevant.) Here are sme examples: Tw-prcessr server: 2 physical prcessrs / 2 (number f prcessrs cvered by a license) equals 1. Yu will need ne license t cver a tw-prcessr server. Fur-prcessr server: 4 physical prcessrs / 2 (number f prcessrs cvered by a license) equals 2. Yu will need tw licenses t cver a fur-prcessr server. Eight-prcessr server: 8 physical prcessrs / 2 (number f prcessrs cvered by a license) equals 4. Yu will need fur licenses t cver an eight-prcessr server. Secnd, determine the number f virtual instances running: Yu can either cunt the number f VOSEs that are running and determine the number f Standard editin licenses (ne license cvers up t tw VOSEs), r yu can purchase Datacenter, which enables unlimited VOSEs n the server. April

13 Vlume Licensing reference guide fr Windws Server 2012 R2 Each Standard editin license prvides yu with the rights t run up t tw VOSEs. T determine the number f Windws Server Standard editin licenses yu need, cunt the ttal number f ttal VOSEs that yu will run n the server; divide that number by tw, and rund up t the nearest whle number. After yu determine the number f licenses needed t cver physical prcessrs and/r VOSEs, the higher f thse tw numbers represents the ttal number f licenses required. Remember that the server must have the apprpriate number f licenses assigned t it t ensure cverage f all f the virtual OSEs that are running at any given time Fr example, if yu are running three virtual machines (VOSEs) n a tw-prcessr server, yu will require tw licenses t cver the three virtual machines. If yu assign tw Standard editin licenses t a single server, yu will be able t run a ttal f fur VOSEs n that server. If yu add additinal Standard editin licenses t that server, the number f allwed VOSEs n that particular server will increase by tw fr a ttal f six VOSEs n that server. 8. Can I use ne Standard license t cver a ne-prcessr server? Yes. The Standard editin license will allw yu t license up t tw physical prcessrs n a single server; hwever, it des nt require the server t have tw physical prcessrs. 9. Can I split my Windws Server 2012 R2 license acrss multiple servers? N. Each license can be assigned nly t a single physical server. 10. Can I assign a Windws Server 2012 R2 license t a virtual machine? N. A license is assigned t the physical server. Each license will cver up t tw physical prcessrs. After assigning the license(s) t a physical server, yu nw have the rights t use the VOSE n that server. 11. Can I mix Datacenter and Standard licenses n the same server? N. All f the prcessrs n a given server must be licensed with the same versin and editin. Yu can run different editins r lder versins f Windws Server sftware as guests within VOSEs, but yu are nt allwed t assign multiple licenses f different versins r editins t the same physical server t license the prcessrs n the server. 12. If I want t use the sftware frm an earlier Windws Server versin r editin, what are my ptins? If yu have Windws Server 2012 R2 Datacenter editin, yu have the right t dwngrade sftware bits t any prir versin r lwer editin. If yu have Windws Server 2012 R2 Standard editin, yu have the right t dwngrade the sftware t use any prir versin f Enterprise, Standard, r Essentials editins. The ability t dwngrade des nt change the licensing r supprt terms in which yu can use the prduct; the purchased prduct (Windws Server 2012 R2) rights apply. This means that the license will cntinue t cver tw physical prcessrs, and the virtualizatin rights d nt change. In additin, the Client Access License (CAL) crrespnding t the purchased versin will apply, as an exceptin; if yu are running a previus versin f ne f the eligible dwngrades, yu can use the crrespnding CAL versin if ne exists. Here are a few examples.
