let's say that we need to calculate the number of required licenses for the following setup:
5 ESX servers
= 2 with 4 6-core sockets
= 3 with 4 12-core sockets
I am told that the number of sockets needs to be used for the license calculation.
So for me this is 20 sockets in total and 5 ESX servers with 4 sockets.
Is it correct to use 5 (number of ESX servers) x Tier-1 (1-5 cpu's)?Or is it necessary to use 5 x Tier-3 (for the total of 20 cpu's)?
This part is very unclear to me.
