4.6 Licensing

This section explains the following:

4.6.1 The OES 11 SP2 Licensing Model

The only OES 11 SP2 licensing restriction is the number of user connections allowed to use OES 11 SP2 services on your network. You are authorized to install as many OES 11 SP2 servers as you need to provide OES 11 SP2 services to those users.

For example, if your OES 11 SP2 license is for 100 user connections, you can install as many OES 11 SP2 servers as desired. Up to 100 users can then connect to and use the services provided by those OES 11 SP2 servers. When you install OES 11 SP2, you must accept an end user license agreement (EULA). Your rights to use the OES 11 SP2 product are limited to the rights set forth in the EULA. Violators of the Novell license agreements and intellectual property are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

To report piracy and infringement violations, please call 1-800-PIRATES (800-747-2837) or send e-mail to pirates@novell.com.

For more information on OES licensing, see the Novell Licensing EULA page on the Novell Web site.

4.6.2 OES Doesn’t Support NLS

Novell Licensing Services (NLS) are not available on OES, nor does an OES installation require a license/key file pair (*.nlf and *.nfk). Therefore, in a mixed OES and NetWare eDirectory tree, at least one NetWare server must hold a replica for each partition where there is a NetWare server object. For more information about licensing for NetWare servers in OES trees, see NetWare Licenses and OES Trees.
