License Horizon 7 Advanced

I am looking at licensing 2 Hosts both with 2 Sockets fro Horizon View 7 Advanced. When I license these for Horizon Advanced do I have to also license the underlying ESXi hosts for 6.5 Ent. Plus or is that included in the Horizon bundle?

With Horizon View you don't need to licence the Hosts with vSphere as long as you are only running Horizon view vm's on the host and not both server and view vm's

You get a specific License called VMware vSphere 6 Desktop Hosts. Its assigned to a host and is limit to run a certain amount of VM's based on your license. it can only be used for VMs as mention earlier.
