    I'm looking at getting a Technet Plus Subscription in order to build a test lab. I've searched but can't find clear answers on the following. Can anyone tell me:

    1. Can I install more than one copy of each product? e.g. 4/5 Windows 2008 Servers
    2. Do the products expire?
    3. If I don't renew next year will the products expire or will I still be able to use the software in my test lab?

    Thanks

    Think I found my own answers.

    1. Yes - Possibly upto 10?
    2. No expiry
    3. Will need to renew to continue using but renewal price is cheaper than new subscription

    Technet Plus here I come!

    I thought if you don't renew you still get to use the software. Does Microsoft expire the licences?

    Prob like the Partner Action Pack - you'll get told that as you no longer subscribe you need to uninstall them :biggrin

    so you just have to uninstall them. Microsoft don't actually expire your licence keys cough cough
