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 http://www.microsoft.com/sql/howtobuy/sqlserverlicensing.mspx. 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.
