    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.

       

      Questions:

      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?
