    Merging licenses with different activation time

    Lukas1981 Lurker


      I would like to merge two license with different activation time. I've found that there is a solution for that http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2006973

      But some question appears while doing this:

      1. May activation time differ for more than 30 days (one license was bought and activate in September and the other was bought and active in June) licenses type will be the same  example - VMware vSphere Standard for 1 CPU with 1 year support from version 5.5, how does the support for that will look like?

      2. Which license type do I need for 2 CPU server with 8 cores and 192 GB of RAM, does this license fit my requirements? Is there a single license which cover such a functionality?

      On HP site I found only licnses for 1 CPU http://h30094.www3.hp.com/searchresults.aspx?store_id=11&search_id=67&dept_id=1328

      3. Do I need VMware vSphere Standard at least to connect to VMware vCenter?

      Thx in advance for any replay :-)
