I administrate an environment with multiple Hypervisor hardware nodes that run VMs of various OSes.
We are running a few Server 2022 Standard VMs, and purchased the right number of cores to run 2 VMs on each node.
In a meeting with my MPSA vendor today I was told that because we run more than 2 VMs total (of ANY OS) on these nodes, we need to rebuy our core licenses or stop running 2022 Standard VMs on these nodes.
I cannot find any information anywhere that suggests this is how the licensing works.
Is this true? Do I have to buy more core licenses to keep running non-Windows VMs on the same Hypervisor as my Windows VMs? Or move to Datacenter and dump the Standard licenses i already have?
Thank You in advance for your help.
