Yes, this is correct. When using Oracle products in a virtual environment, you must count the amount of CPU-cores within the complete environment and/or cluster. So not only the single CPU which was assigned to your virtual server. The idea behind this calculation is simple: you can not guarantee that your virtual server will not consume more CPU power in the near future. You are able to assign more CPU's on the spot.

I would like to know if there has been any movement of Oracle's refusal to recognise the VMWares new "hard partitioning" capabilities for enforcing their CPU/cores licensing model.
I am currently being told that I have to license all cores in the VMware resource pool?
