vm licensing

bankwest asked
Last Modified: 2014-08-14
I get confused on the licensing sometimes, so if someone could help me out with my specific scenario.

I have a box running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise that I understand I can run 4 VM ????

We run ESXI and I have 4 VM servers set up.

I want to add 2 - 4more servers (convert from old Windows 2003) to be virtual.   I know I need to get 2-4 more licenses for those???????       And with that being said, is that all I need to add more VM's?
