OVM 3.2.8 - hard partitioning?

Got a few VM machines. Currently showing as max processors 8 processors 2.

 
What I need to do for licencing purposes is ensure the guest can only use 4 processors. How do I do that?

If so, can it be done whilst server is up?

Even Oracle has problems with licensing most of the time. It changes so often they cannot even keep it straight.

The ONLY way to be 100% sure is to contact Oracle sales or your account team.

While you wait for them to get back to you,  While you wait for them to get back to you, look at what info is out there.  This is the best document I could find:

How many processors  of how many cores you have in the physical machine.
Is the 4-cpu licencing enforced or just guilt-planted?

Total of 16 cores on the physical machine.

Licencing is not enforced but we need to ensure we are compliant.

Sorry: HOW MANY PROCESSORS? 2? You are compliant. Use all 16 cores.

Oracle licensing is per core. One licence = 2 physical cores = 4 v cores.

I asked moderators to re-shuffle TA's, so that you reach experts that are much more knolegeable in Oracle virtualisation licensing.

Not in general! Differences: SE/SE1 vs EE (core vs socket) -> do NOT mix them !!

Yes, but I'd prefer an Oracle License Manager (not just a pure salesman)...
