Server 2012 OEM

Dudes,

Just took delivery of Windows 2012 OEM - which I don't think is what I need.

iirc if I install this on a server, it's then tied to that physical server isn't it? - so if the box dies, the license goes with it and I can't simply reinstall the software on a new box...?

Yep, OEM licenses stay with the hardware and die with the hardware (upgrading the mobo or processors count as dying too).

Hmm.

Being told by suppliers that 2012 is no longer available so i have to go for 2016 and downgrade to 2012.

Something doesn't smell right here - presumably all I need is the Server 2012 Std retail edition? (and i'm sure I've seen suppliers online still selling it) - or is that what they are referring to anyway and the retail version is now sold out?.. sounds a bit like they just want me to go for 2016.

Baldy Fat Halfwit - see I can do it too (though thats not right either).

I dunno - anyone sum up the key differences between 2012 and 2016 - it's only going to be running Hyper V anyway and nothing else.

You can deploy free hyper-v to the bare metal server and then should be able to use the licence for the VM.

You'd need to check with the supplier if downgrade rights apply to the version you buy, sometimes you don't automatically get the right to use an earlier version. If they advise you can do this make sure you get it in writing and keep it, just in case you get audited by MS in the future. Their licencing is notoriously opaque, at least if you have it in writing you are acting in good faith.

Well they said it comes with downgrade rights so presumably I can just install 2012 and use the key they give me and all will be tickety boo.

Always get confused with DGR - presumably that means i'll get 2 keys, a 2016 one and a 2012 one?

2016 has better HyperV. You can do nested virtualisation if you need to bugger about with containers. You can also do pci pass through of graphics cards if your VDI users have a burning need to play Quake online.

Bare Metal Hyper V is just Server core stripped down and prepackaged.
