I have a SQL Server 2019 Standard License (Server+CAL License Model) without Software Assurance. I created a new Azure VM to self install SQL Server. I have some question below:
1. With my license, I will upload a SQL .iso setup file include my license key to Azure VM and then install SQL Server. Is this ok ? Can SQL Server work normally ? Do I violate Microsoft policy ? I search some document, it mention that I have to purchase Software Assurance. After I install SQL Server, I have to report to Microsoft using License Mobility Verification Form within 10 days.
2. Suppose that I have already purchased Software Assurance and installed, activated SQL Server in Azure VM, do I need to register SQL Server Azure VM with the SQL VM resource provider to active Azure Hybrid Benefit ? I search some document, it mention that the hybrid benefit does not apply to SQL Server licensed under the server/CAL license model.
Please help me to answer my questions.
Thanks & Best Regards,
