I would be pleased to get some advice how to detect several Microsoft  SQL Server recognition.
We have a lot of MS SQL server installations in a mixed environment. Some MS SQL servers are licensed by installation plus additional CAL's, other MS SQL servers are licensed per processor or core.

 

Example:

Server A has assigned a SQL Server 2008 Standard license per installation
Server B has assigned a SQL Server 2008 Standard per proc license

 

SQL 2008 can only be licensed via proc or Server. Any idea?
