Assume that I have an environment that is air gapped from production environments.
If I wanted to license every SQL Server to be a Developer Edition what is the best approach to this?
I am aware that one can download Dev Edition from Visual Studio Dev Essentials after registering with a personal Microsoft account, but are the binaries different to Enterprise Edition (and can be differentiated by a SAM tool), or are you provided with specific Dev key for a installation that looks exactly like Enterprise Edition?
Should you and can you run out a build image that has the same individually registered license key to create multiple instances of Dev Edition in a SQL dev farm?
Or is there a specific Dev Edition corporate license key that is available through VLSC, through EA?
