#techdaysnl Recap #ATE #MVP13 Most Important Questions #MIQ   4 comments

Now that the techdays are over and pictures are placed on the web and thinking about he Questions on the ATE booth.

  1. What license do I need ?
  2. Cluster Complicated ?
  3. NLB ?
  4. Quorum Usage
  5. How to manage my site

Do I need datacenter or standard edition for Hyper-v or cluster or should I use the Hyper-v server Free edition.

Microsoft’s new SKU/licensing chart for the four editions

Two of those editions, Essentials and Foundation, don’t allow you to virtualize anything, so we’re really down to two usable versions of Windows Server 2012: Datacenter and Standard. It’s interesting to note that there are no Enterprise or Web versions anymore, but it’s clear that the world has moved almost entirely to virtualization and that there’s no need to base server editions on their applications.

Instead, both Standard and Datacenter are licensed based on the processors (plus user CALs, but that’s not new), with each license granting you the ability to run Windows on two processors. If you have a machine with four processors, you need two licenses. They also both have the exact same functionality, which is a departure from past models where Datacenter had more high availability features, caching, ADFS, multiple DFS roots, and other entitlements.

In fact, the only difference between the Standard and Datacenter versions of Windows Server 2012 is that with Standard you are only allowed to run two virtual machines in addition to the host OS, whereas with Datacenter you are entitled to run as many as you want. All of this can be found in the Windows Server 2012 Licensing & Pricing FAQ or Microsoft Volume Licensing Reference Guide published by Microsoft.

Second Questions :

Cluster/NLB / Quorum.

why use a cluster I run now hyper-v and the vm is on a CSV. Quick and live migration.  <> Yes your vm can be moved but a cluster is more. application redundancy ? <> In my next blog post I will create some real nice cluster config’s

the big question is should I use a quorum or not. Well it depends always on your configuration. but pictures say more than words. and in a next blog post I will get deep on the witness disk/quorum. ( I need a bit time to write the post )

This is a real old picture and maybe there are changes<> I will create a post on this with all the info in it.

  1. Riding within an airplane should not pose a significant risk considering that
    the interior cabins are pressurized but anything like hang gliding or free base jumping should be
    avoided. There’s a short answer to that question that covers the whole topic: just exactly like you’ll an applicant or employee with another health condition that (1) may
    (but doesn’t always) affect their job performance and (2) necessitates their having to consider some time faraway from work. There are numerous items that a expectant mother should be aware of, including good nourishment, good hygiene and needless to say having a stress-free pregnancy. As the women must put additional weight during pregnancy, they started exploring options to shred the additional pounds and obtain back their old figure. If you are a female and need to get pregnant but they are over forty years old you might wish to think about a number of these health threats associated with pregnancy over 40.

  2. This is my first time pay a quick visit at here and i am really happy to read everthing at one place.

    #MIQ | The Windows Server Cluster Failover Blog.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be just me or does it appear like some of these
    remarks look as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
