VM Licenses

I want to understand what type of licenses we have for our VMware environment:
I found the info shown in the screenshot.

I am confused with the VMware Vsphere Enterprise , it is showing it twice a regular one and the Plus one.VM
Thank you

You have both Enterprise and Enterprise Plus licenses on your organisation.

At present it looks like you have been only assigning Enterprise Plus licenses to hosts.

e.g. you have 14 but you have only assigned 12, for Enterprise you have 10 but have not assigned any.

What do you not understand?

We have 6 ESX servers, that could be 2 CPU per server.
can I have some ESX servers with Enterprise Licenses and some with Enterprise Licenses plus ?

I believe with Enterprise license, that may lack some features that the Enterprise plus has, but will not run into issues later hopefully.

Should be okay, provided you do not use Enterprise Plus features on hosts which are not licensed for those features.

You can see the difference, and what you are licensed for, if you check each hosts licensing, it will list the features enabled.
