  • ESXi 5.5 with two physical CPU

    Hi,

    Currently, I need to expand to 2 CPU my ESXi 5.5 server to install more RAM, but I'm not sure if I can install a second CPU with my current license (see pic)
    I read in this forum that the phrase "Licensed for 1 physical CPU" not refers to the maximum number of CPUs that can be installed, just the number of CPUs that are already installed.


    Can anyone confirm this information?


    Thanks

    Licensing is per CPU, so yes you'll need an additional license

      Then If I get a second free license, can I install two physical CPU?

        If you have a licence for 1 CPU and you get another licence for 1 CPU (which equals a total of 2 CPUs) then yes, you should be able to run 2 CPUs on a "1 + 1" licence. I assume you were thinking along the lines of needing a licence that said 2 CPU. Hope you have 8 Cores processors.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

        2 2 1 1 2
