Re: Power BI Report Server pricing

Hi, 

 

I'd like a little clarification on this if possible.

 

We have many SQL servers, a mix of Enterprise and Standard and we have 1 Enterprise Licence with Software assurance. 

 

I can essentially install PBIRS as an app server, with the the software on machine A, the RS databases on machine B and the data from machine C. So, is it a physical requirement of operation that one of these machines needs Enterprise SQL or is it solely for licencing purposes? If not, which one needs enterprise?

 

Cheers

Re: Power BI Report Server pricing

Similar question.

Still need some clarity on the following situation: if you just have somewhere within your organization a SQL EE SA license available your are able to install a Power BI RS on other machines and the report catalog db on e.g. a SQL Server standard edition? Would this somehow limit functionality or would this work just fine?
