Re: Licensing Oracle SE One on VMWare cluster

I thought Michael was both clear and correct. You can't run RAC SE as you describe because the cluster has more than 4 sockets. The cluster is the normal definition of cluster - that is the group of machines working together to provide services transparently. It most definitely doesn't refer to individual resources within the cluster - such as a RAC instance.
