I have a Hyper-V host running 8 Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs on 2 12-core processors.
We use the Windows Server 2019 license model and the "Windows Server Assessment - 2019 licensing" report recommends 60 x 2-core packs i.e. 120 licensable cores.
I was convinced that I actually needed to cover 24 cores for each set of 2 VMs (4 sets in total) i.e. 96 cores.
I ran the compliance calculation again just in case but same results.
When I go to this server in SLM it shows the following:
Is it me going nuts and I do not know how to calculate or am I missing something?
Do I need 96 or 120 cores?
