END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
These license terms are an agreement between the licensor of the software application or suite of applications with which you acquired the Microsoft software (“Licensor”) and you. Please read them. They apply to the software named above, which includes the media on which you received it, if any.
The terms also apply to any Microsoft
- supplements, and
- Internet-based services
for this software, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms apply. Microsoft Corporation or one of its affiliates (collectively, “Microsoft”) has licensed the software to the Licensor.
BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THEM, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE. INSTEAD, RETURN IT TO PLACE OF PURCHASE FOR A REFUND OR CREDIT.
These terms supersede any electronic terms which may be contained within the software. If any of the terms contained within the software conflict with these terms, these terms will control.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: AUTOMATIC UPDATES TO PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF SQL SERVER. If this software is installed on servers or devices running any supported editions of SQL Server prior to SQL Server 2014 (or components of any of them) this software will automatically update and replace certain files or features within those editions with files from this software. This feature cannot be switched off. Removal of these files may cause errors in the software and the original files may not be recoverable. By installing this software on a server or device that is running such editions you consent to these updates in all such editions and copies of SQL Server (including components of any of them) running on that server or device.
IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHTS BELOW FOR EACH SERVER YOU PROPERLY LICENSE.
1.1 Software. The software includes
- server software, and
- additional software that may only be used with the server software directly, or indirectly through other additional software.
1.2 License Model. The software is licensed based on the:
Server + Client – the number of operating system environments (OSEs) in which the server software is run, and the number of devices and users that access instances of server software.
1.3 Licensing Terminology.
- Instance. You create an “instance” of the software by executing the software’s setup or install procedure. You also create an instance of the software by duplicating an existing instance. References to the “software” in this agreement include “instances” of the software.
- Run an Instance. You “run an instance” of the software by loading it into memory and executing one or more of its instructions. Once running, an instance is considered to be running (whether or not its instructions continue to execute) until it is removed from memory.
- Operating System Environment (“OSE”). An “operating system environment” or “OSE” is
(i) all or part of an operating system instance, or all or part of a virtual (or otherwise emulated) operating system instance which enables separate machine identity (primary computer name or similar unique identifier) or separate administrative rights; and
(ii) instances of applications, if any, configured to run on the operating system instance or parts identified above.
A physical hardware system can have either or both of the following:
- one physical operating system environment;
- one or more virtual operating system environments.
A physical operating system environment is configured to run directly on a physical hardware system. The operating system instance used to run hardware virtualization software or to provide hardware virtualization services (e.g. Microsoft virtualization technology or similar technologies) is considered part of the physical operating system environment.
A virtual operating system environment is configured to run on a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system.
- Server. A server is a physical hardware system capable of running server software. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate physical hardware system.
- Assigning a License. To assign a license is to designate that license to a server, device or user as indicated below.
- Core Factor. The core factor is a numerical value associated with a specific physical processor for purposes of determining the number of licenses required to license all of the physical cores on a server.
2. USE RIGHTS FOR SERVER + CORE LICENSE MODEL
2.1 Assigning the License to the Server
(a) Initial Assignment. Before you run any instance of the server software under a software license, you must assign that license to one of your servers. That server is considered the “licensed server” for such license. You may not assign the same license to more than one server but you may assign other software licenses to the same server. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate server.
(b) Reassignment. You may reassign a software license, but not within 90 days of the last assignment. You may reassign a license sooner if you retire the licensed server due to permanent hardware failure. If you reassign a license, the server to which you reassign the license becomes the new licensed server for that license.
2.2 Running Instances of the Server Software. For each software license you assign to the server, you may run any number of instances of the server software in one physical or virtual OSE on the licensed server at a time.
2.3 Running Instances of the Additional Software. You may run or otherwise use any number of instances of the additional software listed below in physical or virtual OSEs on any number of devices so long as the additional software is used only in conjunction with the integrated software turnkey application or suite of applications (the “Unified Solution”) delivered by or on behalf of the Licensor. You may use the additional software only with the server software directly, or indirectly through other additional software.
- Client Tools Connectivity
- Documentation Components
2.4 Creating and Storing Instances on Your Servers or Storage Media. You have the additional rights listed below for each software license you acquire.
(a) You may create any number of instances of the server software and additional software.
(b) You may store instances of the server software and additional software on any of your servers or storage media.
(c) You may create and store instances of the server software and additional software solely to exercise your right to run instances of the server software under any of your software licenses as described (e.g., you may not distribute instances to third parties).
2.5 Client Access Licenses (CALs).
(a) Initial Assignment of CALs. You must acquire and assign a SQL Server 2012 CAL to each device or user that accesses your instances of the server software directly or indirectly. A hardware partition or blade is considered to be a separate device.
- You do not need CALs for any of your servers licensed to run instances of the server software.
- You do not need CALs for up to two devices or users to access your instances of the server software only to administer those instances.
- Your CALs permit access to your instances of earlier versions, but not later versions, of the server software. If you are accessing instances of an earlier version, you may also use CALs corresponding to that version.
(b) Types of CALs. There are two types of CALs: one for devices and one for users. Each device CAL permits one device, used by any user, to access instances of the server software on your licensed servers. Each user CAL permits one user, using any device, to access instances of the server software on your licensed servers. You may use a combination of device and user CALs.
(c) Reassignment of CALs. You may
- permanently reassign your device CAL from one device to another, or your user CAL from one user to another; or
- temporarily reassign your device CAL to a loaner device while the first device is out of service, or your user CAL to a temporary worker while the user is absent.
3. ADDITIONAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS AND/OR USE RIGHTS.
3.1 Runtime-Restricted Use Software. The software is "Runtime-Restricted Use" software; as such, it may only be used to run the Unified Solution solely as part of the Unified Solution. The software may not be used either (i) to develop any new software applications, (ii) in conjunction with any software applications, databases or tables other than those contained in the Unified Solution, and/or (iii) as a standalone software application. The foregoing provision, however, does not prohibit you from using a tool to run queries or reports from existing tables. A CAL permits you to access instances of only the Runtime-Restricted User version of the server software licensed and delivered to you as part of the Unified Solution, in accordance with the other terms of the agreement.
3.2 Maximum Instances. The software or your hardware may limit the number of instances of the server software that can run in physical or virtual OSEs on the server.
3.3 Multiplexing. Hardware or software you use to
- pool connections
- reroute information, or
- reduce the number of devices or users that directly access or use the software (sometimes referred to as “multiplexing” or “pooling”), does not reduce the number of licenses of any type that you need.
3.4 No Separation of Server Software. You may not separate the server software for use in more than one OSE under a single license, unless expressly permitted. This applies even if the OSEs are on the same physical hardware system.
3.6 Included Microsoft Programs. The software includes other Microsoft programs listed at go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=298186. Microsoft is making these programs available to you as a convenience only and these programs are licensed and supported under their own separate terms and policies. You may only use these programs in conjunction with the software licensed here. If you do not agree to the license terms for these programs, you may not use them.
5. INTERNET-BASED SERVICES. Microsoft provides Internet-based services with the software. It may change or cancel them at any time.
