  I am working on a new installation (my first) of VMWare vSphere HA for several windows virtual machines. I have two servers with shared storage. When the hosts are placed into the cluster, there is essentially one server where all the virtual machines are running. I have that setup and running well so far. :)
  My question is about licensing those 5 windows 2016 server STD machines. Since there are two physical hosts do I have to have a license for each machine on both hosts?
