Because of the way license keys are used in VMware for vSAN especially, we should be able to order a license key of the amount of CPU that we need in our cluster. License key are assign to each cluster not host. So if my cluster has 10 hosts at 2 CPUs each, i'll need a 20 CPUs license keys, but portal only offer us to order 1,2 or 4 CPUs.
Than you ask support to combine key, which they do, but it doesn't reflect in the portal. Management of licensing become a mess for clients who prefer to use bare metal offering. I know IBM bypass that in their VCS offering by using large keys which they don't offer their clients.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
