I have 5 ESXi hosts & all the 5 ESXi hosts will form a single VMware cluster.
I believe the SQL licenses is based on the physical core CPUs.
So in this case if I form a single VMware Cluster & if I want my SQL servers to be part of only 2 hosts still do I need to have license for all the 5 ESXi hosts.
I want my SQL servers to be available in only 2 hosts. But all the 5 ESXI severs form a single VMware cluster.
How should i license it. Should i consider license for 2 hosts or I need to consider for 5 hosts.
