I believe you should see 2

I believe you should see 2 for the platform and 4 total for the HA cluster.

Assuming you have the failover pair configured and working, please share the output of:

So it's working as designed -

So it's working as designed - 2 licenses on each platform  and 4 total for the 2-unit HA pair.

Does that answer your question?

No, my problem is we can work

No, my problem is we can work with two users only concurrent and when we tried to use third or fourth user its give us login failed and once we log out from previous users we able to log in with third and fourth users ?!!! 

its meaning its still using the 2 licenses

we think it may work in scenario Active/Active only not with Active/Standby!!!
