    vSAN 6.7 Witness - Which license do I need?

    Cymraes Novice

      Which license do I need?

       

      Planning to install stretched clustering across 2 sites for active/active workloads.   Need to install a witness on a 3rd that currently does not have a VMware Environment so have purchased a server for this site.  The witness virtual appliance comes with its own license, free of charge, from VMware but for this configuration I will need to install ESXi on the new server, so here is where I'm confused.  

       

      Current environment incorporates a Dell/EMC VxRail in both datacentres having Enterprise+ licenses, so which license do I need for the Witness ESXi that will host the virtual Witness appliance?

      Really do not want to pay for the most expensive license if it is not a requirement.

       

      Have trawled VMware and other sites, still can't find a clear answer.

       

      Thanks in advance
