partial license key upgrade

hi, i have a 2 hosts cluster and spare host managed by one vcenter with essential plus license. I have upgrade the vcenter server and 2 cluster's host from 6.7 to 7. But the spare host I can't update it now.
So the question is that, how works partial licence upgrade?
i saw that i can upgrade 4 of 6 CPU from 6.x to 7.
But when i will perform upgrade of last vmware host will the remaining license for 2 cpu be a different key? or can I already upgrade the key for all 6CPUs, the old 6.x key remains on the vcenter until I manually delete it?

thanks

Andrea

Just visit the customer connect portal and when you able to find your license there is a selection Filter "Upgradable" in the middle of the page.

If you follow the wizard you will find out that its a no brainer to update only half of of your licenses. So it will work exactly as you assumed.
