rp7420 licensing info

Good Morning,

Can anyone answer the following for me?

1. What tier is a rp7420? 2 or 3?
2. Is software that is CPU based transferable regardless of which tier based system it was purchased with? We have mostly L2000 and N4000's on site which we'd like to transfer some licenses to the rp7420's once they're slated for install.

I know I should contact my account rep but it's a bit early in the day yet. Of course, management needs the info for a meeting shortly.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks,
Eric

Careful, as the HP-UX layered products (MirrorDisk, OnLineJFS, ServiceGuard)had different tiers than did OpenView software products. Also, most of the HP-UX layered products are licensed per processor in 11i which is needed for the rp7420. You can transfer software equal only to the number of processors you had and only if you are under an HP Software Support Service Contract. Thus if you N4000 had 6 CPUs and your rp7420 had 12 CPUs, you would need to purchase licenses for the additional 6 CPUs.
