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?
