Want to purchase WIndows Server 2019 Standard OEM license for my 48 cores server : Which part numbers to purchase.

I'm planning to get Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM licenses for my new servers. Each server will come with 2 x 24 core CPUs ( total 48 cores). 

 

What really puzzle me is that our country Microsoft partner has told my vendor that it is not possible to buy OEM license for my 48 core server. Their answer is that there is no option to go beyond 24 core OEM licensing and advise me to go for VL license instead. 

 

I kind of disagreed to their response as it's contradicting to my understanding which i have gathered online. 

 

I found these information online : 

DescriptionPart-No
Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM upto 16 Core Single Server License+MediaP73-07788
Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM 24 Core Single Server License+MediaP73-07807
Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM Extra 2 Core Additional POS LicenseP73-07888
Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM Extra 4 Core Additional POS LicenseP73-07907
Windows Server 2019 Standard OEM Extra 16 Core Additional POS LicenseP73-07926

 

There is no plan to run VM on these servers so the licensing will be purely based on the CPUs core.

 

Can anyone advise me if these 3 options is fine for my 48 cores server. Option #3 would be my ideal choice as it has lesser paper license stickers. 

 

Option #1: 

Purchase 1 qty - P73-07807 (base license for up to 24 cores) 

purchase 12 qty - P73-07888 (Extra 2 Core Additional License)

 

Option #2: 

Purchase 1 qty - P73-07807 (base license for up to 24 cores) 

purchase 6 qty - P73-07907 ((Extra 4 Core Additional License)

 

Option #3: 

Purchase 1 qty - P73-07807 (base license for up to 24 cores) 

purchase 1 qty - P73-07926 (Extra 16 Core Additional  License)

purchase 2 qty - P73-07907 ((Extra 4 Core Additional License)
