I think it would survive most recoveries. However, if the hardware changed too much, it might trigger a re-activation.

this raises the question of bare metal server restore - can activation of these dreamspark licenses survive a bare metal restore? I have done client BMR to the same physical disk and they did not require re-activation, I am curious what happens if you have a bad drive and have to BMR...

just adding to the technet advice here..


only those technet agreements (AND renewals) signed/agreed before 16th July 2012 are entitles to perpetual technet licensing.


If you signed/renewed on or after 16th July 2012, then your technet license usage rights expired on the day your technet subscription ended.
