Les licenses ROK et la virtualisation Hyper-V – Part 1 – HP

Qu’est ce qu’une license ROK ?

L’acronyme signifie Reseller Option Kit. Il s’agit d’une license de type OEM, mais liée au constructeur. Celles-ci sont proposées à un tarif particulièrement intéressant, je vous conseille d’ailleurs de vérifier les prix publics fournit par les constructeurs.

Voici les détails des licenses ROK sur le site Microsoft :

Les OS / Applications disponibles en ROK sont :

  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 Foundation
  • Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2
  • Windows Small Business Server 2008
  • Windows Essential Business Server 2008
  • Microsoft Windows HPC Server 2008
  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008

Concernant les OS, ceux-ci sont bridés techniquement (BIOS-Locked) , de sorte à ne s’installer que sur des machines du constructeur.

Aucun problème donc pour les machines physique, mais qu’en est-il dans un environnement virtuel ?

Comme le BIOS n’est pas exposé directement aux VMs, certaines manipulations sont requises, et sont liées directement au constructeur.

L’objectif ici, est donc de recenser les manipulations nécéssaires, par constructeur, lors de l’utilisation d’Hyper-V :

Nous commencerons avec HP :

Une Réponse to “Les licenses ROK et la virtualisation Hyper-V – Part 1 – HP”

  1. Bonjour,

    merci bien pour cet article, je commençais à devenir dingue avec un dvd oem HP Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise. Impossible bien sûr d’installer l’OS sur une VM Hyper-V.
