Os info: Hyper-V
Oracle info: 12cR1
Message: Hi,
I would like to find out how many licenses I need to pay for this-soon-to-be situation:
- host server has 2 sockets (1 free, 1 occupied)
- each socket has 2 cpu's
- each cpu has 4 cores

We would run Hyper-V on this host server. And one of the VM's would have an Oracle database on it (Standard Edition 2).

How many SE2 licenses do I need to buy? and please explain how you come to it...

Thanks.

Message: Hi,
Standard Edition being licensed by occupied socket, you need one license here.
However, I don't understand what you mean by "each socket has 2 cpu's" If you are talking about multi-chip processors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-chip_module) then you need 2 licences here.
Regards,
Franck.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the case that OP really have multi-chip processor in each socket (2 sockets with two multi-chip processors) then he is not allowed to install Oracle SE 2 on this server at all. Oracle SE2 can be installed on servers with max 2 sockets. According to this guide:

http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pricing/databaselicensing-070584.pdf

Quote:
When licensing Oracle programs
with Standard Edition One, Standard Edition 2 or Standard Edition in the product name, a processor is counted equivalent to a socket; however, in the case of multi-chip modules, each chip in the multi-chip module is counted as one occupied socket.


Which means that from Oracle perspective OP has a 4 socket server and installing SE2 on this server is not permitted from the license point of the view. At least this is how I interpret above document.

Regards,
Ales

Message: Hi Ales,
Good point. I really don't know how Oracle LMS will apply the '2 socket server' limit, and they may count 4 here.

Franck.

Message: Hi Franck,
thanks for your reply. But I was suprised that you say I would only need 1 license. I would of guessed that it would be 2 because the Oracle Licensing documentation says :

"When licensing Oracle programs
with Standard Edition One, Standard Edition 2 or Standard Edition in the
product name, a processor is counted equivalent to a socket"

And since I have 2 processors, it's counted equivalent to 2 sockets and since SE2 licensing is based on the number of sockets, I would think I need 2 licenses.

Would you agree?

Kind regards,
Benny.

Message: Hi Benny,
I guessed that you had only one processor because multi-chip processors are rare on environments that run Standard Edition. What kind of processor is it? As Ales mentioned, that can be a no-go for SE2.

Franck.

I guess this is not a multi-chip processor?
