How do others report on the license metric for Windows Server 2016 and newer?
The default metric is ‘Unknown’, and the existing metrics for Windows 2008/2012 are not relevant since they are based on socket “Microsoft Single and Dual Physical Processor”.
Windows 2016+ is based on Physical Core, but the metric “Microsoft Physical Core with SA” isn’t applicable as that’s used for SQL server.
The difference between SQL & Windows is that SQL has a minimum of 4 cores per physical socket, and Windows is a minimum of 8 cores per physical socket, which means that quad-core dual socket doesn’t report Windows server licensing correctly.
