Pinned topic Oprimizing use of VMWare

‏2013-01-18T13:42:46Z |
Example Environment:
  • 4 node VMWare cluster with failover enabled between nodes (using VMWare HA) and also with VMWare DRS to move VMs between nodes.
  • Each node has 8 cores but the product (e.g. WAS) is only running on 2 VMs at any one time and they are both 'pinned' to the same physical host (i.e. for these hosts DRS is disabled)

Question:
  • What technical changes in the VMWare configuration would influence the licensing?

    Only changes to number/type of CPUs assigned to VMs, change to hardware configuration of the VMWare host or moving VMs to another physical host may affect licensing.
