  • Patch Lady – bad news about those Server 2008/2008 R2 licenses

    Posted on December 27th, 2019 at 22:18 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    So I have bad news about any extended security updates for Server 2008/2008 R2 licenses that us common folks might want or need to buy a little more time for our Servers.  Even if you have a software assurance license you would need an Enterprise agreement to get extended patches.

    Your only other option is to move to a virtual machine in Azure.

    I heard back from the vendor I use for software assurance and he said….

    Hello Susan,

    I won’t be able to provide pricing on this since you don’t have an enterprise agreement.

    Happy Holidays!
