Hi Friends,

What is the best way to get the information regarding the SQL Server licenses in our environment. We need to get the information as serverName, edition & licenseType (client/server) etc.

Any help is appreciated.

SQL doesn't keep track of how it's licenced, that's paperwork. (other than SQL 2012 in one case)

As for server name, version and edition, have a look at the MAP tool from Microsoft.

With difficulty, 2005 onwards, SQL doesn't store if it is proc/core or server/cal licensed, it is up to you to assign licenses logically to ensure your server estate is covered and complies with MS licensing regulations.
