We have a SharePoint 2010 farm, 2 web servers, 3 application servers and the databases on an Active/Active cluster. One active node just for SharePoint databases. No SSRS or SSAS installed on the cluster. We want to install Reporting Services with SharePoint integration. The ReportServer and ReportServerTemp databases will be on the same node as SharePoint databases in the cluster. If the IIS part of SSRS is installed on an Application server in the SharePoint farm, does this mean we have to pay an addditional license fee outside of the license on the Active/Active cluster? Is we add an additional server to the SharePoint farm for load balancing of the application servers, does that require an additional license fee? Thanks, Thomas
You don't say what version of SQL you're looking at e.g. 2008 R2, 2012 etc. I'd suggest you ask your license vendor. I think that many people are reluctant to give out license advice in the event of any comeback if it's inadvertently incorrect. I'm sorry it's not more helpful but it is the only way to be sure.
