Where should I place the license certificate in eDirectory?
Because licenses are consumed by User objects, they should be installed in an eDirectoryTM container at or above the Users. NetWare® 6 searches for licenses upward in the tree from the user's context. If a license is not found in the current user's context, NLS will search upward in the tree to the organization level. Licenses cannot be installed into containers higher than an organization.
In NetWare 6, users do not consume licenses from individual servers; therefore, it does not make sense for licenses to be tied to servers. User licenses must be installed into the users's context or a context which can be found on an upward search from the users's context.
NOTE: If a license is not found in the upward search, no search of the server's context is attempted. This prevents problems between different departments that manage their own licenses in configurations where users reside in departmental contexts but servers are installed in a central location.
