Puzzle - Windows Server 2016 Datacenter :-)

Dear Snow Experts,

can you help us to solve this licensing riddle

- we have a VMWARE system with 9 hosts and in total 204 Cores - organized in one single Datacenter in SNOW

- we purchased 208   licenses Windows Server Datacenter (per core) and assigned it to this datacenter

 

i have no idea what all these numbers in the compliance calculation mean??? 

7 Cores ?? -> we have 204 Cores

208 Licenses - correct

45 Minimum requirement -> we have nine hosts, so minimum requirement is 144 (9*8*2)

256 Coverage -> ??

48 VM Use rights -> we run 127 VMs on top of this DC

 

there are no other computers running WS DC 2016 

in my opinion the overall compliance should be +4

 

thank you

Lambert
