Your Essentials Plus  License permits you to Add up to 3 Hosts with 2 physical CPUs, and vCenter Server.

So you are licensed!

Oh, sorry! Misread! Essentials!!!!!

Don't know why!

Sorry, you will need to purchase

2 x VMware vSphere 5 Enterprise Plus Licensed for 1 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)

1 for each processor in the server.

vSphere is licensed per socket (populated), so a Dual Processor Server

2 !
