BTW... High Availability/Disaster Recovery and SQL Licensing

If like me you are looking to eak (sp) every dollar of costs savings out of your deployments take a look at the SQL Server Pricing and Licensing paper at I'm not sure this is common knowledge or not, (Is it? Please comment) but your passive servers do not need licenses provide that they do not process queries. I will not interpret this in any way as to avoid the wrath of the man. :-) Refer to the paper or your licensing representative for more information.
