Has anyone come across the challenge of accurately setting the VM use rights when assigning Windows Server licenses for a host?
For example: The Windows Server 2016 Standard terms say that after licensing the minimum number of physical cores, you are allowed 2 Operating System Environments (OSE).
So let's keep it simple, say you have a host with 2x8 core processors. You assign 16 core licenses. This allows you 2 VMs. However, when you go to set your VM use rights on the license in SLM, you can only set a minimum of 1 VM, as you see in the screenshot here:
The implication of this is that Snow sees 16 licenses are assigned, so it will allow for 16 VMs. Which is incorrect, only 2 are allowed.
Has anyone come across this issue, and if so, how did you deal with it?
Thanks for any feedback!
