BYOL of SQL Server Standard to Azure

Hello all,

Regarding the use of existing licenses in Azure SQL Server VM's, how does it work? I've been searching through documentation but couldnt find anything.

How can i move the license from on-premises to Azure? I know we need to have a license with Software Assurance that is either Standard or enterprise, but how do we perform the verification?

Does someone have a guide or somehting like that? I've found one, but it's pretty old and the links don' work.

Thanks in advance,

SQL Server licensing is only a piece of paper. It is not "installed" or "moved" between servers. A SQL Server does not enforce or contain a license.

For detailed information about the license issue, please call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. For international customers, please use the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/worldwide to find contact information in your locations.
