I'm just wondering if anyone has seen this issue before. A customer of mine has a cluster that is fully licensed. Recently, they temporarily added another standalone host in order to backup a single VM. They did not purchase any additional licensing. That backup ran successfully but when the nightly backup ran later that day, several VMs on another host were not backed up. It seems that adding a host can result in a socket license being reassigned i.e. the license used by one host can be taken away and given to the newly added host.
Has anyone seen this happen before? Does it even seem possible that a license could be reassigned without warning the user?
