This might help:

Basically, if you are "soft partitioning" a server, you need to license
every CPU in the server.  A nagging issue for many who want to run
Oracle in, say, a VMWare environment.

We are contemplating migrating some of our servers to VM.  How does
Oracle handle licensing per processor in a VM environment.  Any Oracle
docs you can refer me to?
