Symetrical Multi-Processing (SMP) License

Taha had a licensing question:

 

**********************

 

Does SMP utilize target based licensing or source based licensing??

 

If a customer would like to migrate a physical server to a Virtual Machine on VMware or Hyper-V does he need a license for the source host or the target ESX or Hyper-V server???

 

*******************

 

From Vincent:

 

********************

 

It's the target that needs to be licensed. An Insight Control license for a host covers unlimited migrations to that host.

 

********************

 

Any other licensing gurus out there that concur with Vincent? Other comments?
