Quick question. We are in the process of replacing some legacy SAN's and Blades with HCI kit. The new kit has a lot more compute processing power and we have it configured as an N+1 system. So 96 total cores become 64 usable (16 per node).
Do we have to licence the full 96, just the 64 or just the ones we use. The HCI cluster automatically mirrors the data between various nodes so I can't statically assign a host licence to backup up certain VM's. I want to be sure we don't go overboard with licensing and it can be managed.
