While adding licenses for Windows server 2016 Standard, the VM use rights are fixed. can we change that in any case or by default it is mapped to the application??
no you can't Change this Setting.
For Windows Server 2016 Standard, the following applies:
Two VMs are covered for each time a server is fully licensed.
Thanks for your reply.
Is this done in the latest version of SLM. I am working on SLM 8.1.2 for a particular customer and when I select this application without entering the SKU there are no restrictions in VM use rights.
this is done since Version 8.2 of SLM
The newest Version is 8.3.3
Thanks for confirming this.
Will explain you the scenario that we are facing for this customer. Have 32 licenses of Windows server 2016 standard, want to cover the consumption of Windows server 2012 R2 standard with these licenses.
Windows server 2012 R2 standard is installed on 2 servers - both Esxi's, have 1 proc each and 4 cores respectively.
But when I assign 16 licenses to each server the server shows overassignment.
Based on the details you provided, it looks to me like the the over-assignment is derived from the fact that you have assigned the licenses to servers that don't have VM's associated to them. in this case, ignore the over-assignment.
To verify or validate this theory for yourself, try an example assignment to a Windows Server that has 2 Windows Server VM's and see if this is still the case.
I hope this is helpful.
