Re: Some doubts about licensing iLO Adv for BladeSystems

Hi rey,

Check this site for help on PE licensing:
http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantessentials/license/options.html

Here is a little detail on the choices you have:
* HP iLO Advanced BL 1-Svr incl 1yr TS&U (512488-B21)
This is a single license for one blade server.

* HP iLO Advanced BL 8-BL incl 1yr TS&U (512489-B21)
This is an 8-pack for 8 blade servers.

* HP iLO Advanced BL Flex incl 1yr TS&U (512490-B21)
This is the Flex license; you identify the number of licenses you need (I guess 6) and you get one key that works on all servers.

* HP iLO Advanced BL Track incl 1yr TS&U (512491-B21)
?? Not sure, the Tracking ID is also referred to as the part number.

* HP iLO Advanced BL Elec incl 1yr TS&U (TA851AAE)
This is the electronic license option. You get an email with a link to download software instead of receiving a CD in the mail.

good luck!
