Oracle vMWare VCenter 6.0 and Higher
In my research I noticed that Oracle on my vMWare instances they are consuming at the host level and per the documentation with Flexera this is as the tool is designed. However there is a note in the list that states to reach out Flexera Professional Services.
How have other organizations handled these and has Flexera Professional Services help this out? Is there a way to have the VCenter consume the licenses since we use VCenter 6.0+.
Do you mean vSphere instead of IBM websphere?
IBM websphere we license by PVU and meassure with ilmt, but fnms has also support ootb for PVU.
I think there exist reports for different vcenter version, but not sure. Default oracle is that you need to license all vcenters in your environment on todays supported vcenter versions. That would be very costly for most companies. Either you take the oracle fight, negotiate vmware terms or move to the cloud with a different metric
