    Licensing group based on OSI but hosts get "invalid license" watermark

    Pb1204 Novice

      In vROps 6.7 I would like to create a license group based on OSI (vm), not CPU (host). I do not have enough licenses based on host cpu, but I do have enough licenses based on the number of vms.


      In the license group, if I only create a Virtual Machine criteria then all my hosts have the "invalid license watermark". When I add a second criteria in the license group with an OR and select "Host System", then the watermark disappears but a warning comes up about not having enough CPU licenses.



      1. In my understanding, licensing on the vm level also means all hosts they run on are licensed, correct?

      2. If so, how should I setup the license groups to accomplish this?
