Ok so I want to be sure that this is correct.

So the setup is going to be a Windows 2016 Standard VM assigned with 4 Cores running SQL 2017 Standard

So if I buy a Server 2016 Standard ($882) then purchase 30 CALS for it, then buy 2x SQL 2017 Standard 2 Core packs (so 4 Cores total licensed)

Then I can have 30 users access the SQL server and be in compliance with Microsoft licensing?
