Purchased a server from manufacturer and it came with VMWare ESXi 5.5 for which we installed one Windows 2012 Standard server. The Windows 2012 server was configured as a terminal server and we configured 4 RDP host running Windows 7 for remote users. Everything has been fine for months until this last weekend when a UPS was slapped out. Now every time I try and start the Windows 2012 server I get the following error "Feature vsmp not licensed, requires 24 have 8".
Other helpful information:
If I got to edit the server under the hardware section it show 24 CPUs, number of virtual sockets: 2, Number of cores per socket: 12, total number of cores: 24.
This is a production server and I would appreciate any help or suggestions resolving this issue.
