  • Evaluation License: Available from Novell Downloads.

    You receive your 60-day evaluation license when you download the evaluation version of Vibe.

  • Starter Pack License: Available from Novell Downloads and from the Novell Vibe Starter Pack Web page .

    You receive your 10-user starter pack license when you download the 10-user starter pack.

  • Standard Vibe License: Purchased through a Novell sales representative or Novell partner.

    The Standard Vibe License gives full Vibe functionality on a per-user basis.

    After you purchase the Standard Vibe License, you can access your license key or view your purchase history in the Novell Customer Center.
