License SQL Active vs Passive Nodes when bought through CSP Program

Hi All,

Does my customer need to license both active and passive nodes in a SQL failover cluster, When the SQL licenses are purchased via CSP? I know with Software Assurance they'd only need to license the active, but wasn't sure how that would work in CSP since there is no SA

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Regarding the tag [sql-server-general] needs to be explained that this is more of an area for SQL Server technical issues.

    For question regarding pricing / licensing please contact a Microsoft sales partner or licensing expert. Please get help through the information provided by tom.

    Best Regards,
