DPM licensing question

John Rafter 20 Reputation points

Hyper V environment that has datacenter licensing. We are building out a physical server (2022)for the DPM and SQL installation. My understanding is that this management server requires no additional licensing since the guests are running on the Hyper V with Datacenter.

Can someone clarify this?

    The System Center 2022 licensing model for Standard and Datacenter will be the same as 2019 with server and client management licenses. Licenses are required only for the endpoints being managed. No additional licenses are needed for customers with SQL Server Standard Edition. The server management licensing of System Center 2022 will be based on physical cores. The core-based licensing will align with the Windows Server 2022 model to provide a consistent licensing metric for managed VMs.
