Move product licenses to another Server

Hello,

We have an rx86xx running HP-UX 11.23 who is decomissioned now. And we are thinking about to move some Products like C++, MirrorDisk, GlancePlus, OnlineJFS, OpenView Performance Agent etc., who are actually licensed to the rx86xx Server, to another HP-UX Server running 11.23(rx26xx).
Is this possible or do we have to buy new licenses?

thanks
Mario

Hi,

It is possible to move the licenses - you can get in touch with your HP Support personnel and I believe that they would be able to issue you licenses/codewords for the other server.

Ok,

Thanks for your quick reply. In this case I'll try to open a case at HP Support.

Re: Move product licenses to another Server

There are 2 seperate things
codewords and licenses.
You'll find the used codewords on the server in /var/adm/sw/.codewords if you installed them from a local tape/cdrom. Check the depot server (if any) for more codewords.
But this does not necessarily allow you to use the codewords on another server.
Contact HP to move the licenses (support)!

My 2 cents,
Armin
