So we have a few ESXI 5.5 installations running the free license, which only allows 8vCPU's per VM, but we have one VM which needs more than that, and are looking to purchase the vSphere Essentials Kit, which states that:
"It includes 6 CPU licenses of vSphere Essentials (for 3 servers with up to 2 processors each) and 1 license for vCenter Server Essentials"
So to clarify, does that mean I can have 3 seperate servers, each with 2 physical processors licensed with full functionality (Can add as many vCPU's to my VM's as I want)?
Do these servers have to be on the same network? Or can we license unrelated servers at different locations with this Kit aswell?
Are we easily able to downgrade the 6.5 license to a 5.5 and then upgrade back to 6.5 if needed in future?
