Considerations and Limitations

  • Consider Microsoft limits for evaluation versions of Windows Server 2012 R2 and 2016. You have 10 days to complete online activation, otherwise your Windows evaluation license expires, and Netwrix Auditor virtual appliance will shut down every hour. Provide a valid license key for Windows Server, or go to Microsoft Licensing Activation Center to register your license online. Refer to Microsoft article for more information: Evaluation Versions and Upgrade Options for Windows Server 2012. Also, you can register you license by phone. See Microsoft Licensing Activation Centers worldwide telephone numbers for more information.
  • Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition is only recommended for evaluation, PoC or small deployments. For production deployment planning in bigger environments, refer to requirements and recommendations listed in SQL Server and Audit Database section.
