Add VM to windows server 2008 r2 Enterprise

I have 4 VM on Windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise,which is the max for a single license.

If I want to host more than 4 VM, is it possible? Can I just add an additional 2008 standard which will enable me to have 2 additional VMs?

Thx!

Thx for the solution. I called Microsoft support and they said even though I am not going to upgrade to server2012 and plan to downgrade to server 2008, I will still need to purchase the user CAL for server 2012. My staff have existing userCAL for 2008 server.

Is this true?

Also 1 Windows server 2012 license is required for every 2 processors on the server. Therefore if you have 4 processors,you will require 2 licenses?
