Hyper-V Unleashed: Resources

I just finished up my Hyper-V Unleashed online presentation – and was happy to see that there were over 600 attendees.

At the end of my presentation I provided a slide with a list of additional resources – and a number of people have asked for those links. There were also a couple of great questions that I've touched upon with additional resources as well.

QUESTION: Transferring OEM licenses to work as guest licenses on Hyper-V hosts:
- http://blogs.technet.com/jhoward/archive/2005/05/27/405432.aspx
The above information is QUITE dated – but still accurate: You typically can NOT transfer OEM licenses to new hardware – so consolidating OEM licenses runs afoul of licensing terms in most cases. However, SOME OEM terms will allow you to transfer licenses to new hardware - you just need to consult your specific terms from your vendor.
Microsoft will let you look up those terms here: (Only works in IE)

Likewise, you can also call 800-426-9400 to get more information/help.
