  • It isn't clear whether you have 2 - 16 core or a total of 16 cores but either case for windows you'll need to license the 32 or 16 core total. See datasheet

    1. A minimum of 8 core licenses is required for each physical processor and a minimum of 16 core licenses is required for each server.
    2. Core licenses are sold in packs of two.
    3. 8 two-core packs will be the minimum required to license each physical server.

    Also note that any replies here should be considered as anonymous opinions. For legal licensing questions you should contact your reseller's trained licensing specialist, or contact microsoft directly.
