Hi

You need to have license for Mirrordisk/UX. There is no server or workstation license for Mirrordisk/UX product.

Re: HP Mirrordisk/UX on C8000

Mirrordisk/UX is available as a standalone product to be purchased and it is bundled in the OS media only if you have bought EOE (Enterprise operating Environment) or MCOE (Mission Critical OE). It is not included in the FOE (Foundation OE) OS media. Before 11.00 there were separate media for servers and workstations because the older workstations were separate hardware platforms. The recent workstations B and C series are the same hardware platform as the servers and the OS media is the same for all.

There is also MTOE and TCOE but there are less used and known.

Look at http://docs.hp.com/en/5187-2725/apds01.html?jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

It shows what each environment contains. It does not show it on the table but all OE install fine on workstations as well.

Re: HP Mirrordisk/UX on C8000

I have not bought any workstations recently (The last one was a C3600 when they firstcame ut) but all the OE software on the servers I buy is sold (licensed) and supported on a per core basis. (So for a dual core processor you need 2 licenses). The pricing structure is also based on the server class and size. I assume it might be the same on the C8000.

This is a workstation. How many CPUs are in it? It appears it supports up to 4 cores.

IPF == Integrity, which is unrelated to C8000.
I'm not sure what your question is?

Re: HP Mirrordisk/UX on C8000

It is one of the option when you try to buy the software on software.hp.com. I now know it relates to integrity servers. So for my worstation it's a per proc. lic., which is 2, so that is about $2,000. A bit pricie for a workstation that can be bought for a little more. Thanks

Re: HP Mirrordisk/UX on C8000

NonGuru, did you ever purchase the MirrorDisk license for your C8000 workstation?

I'm in a similar situation, I need to get HP Mirrordisk/UX for a ZX6000 HP Itanium workstation and the only product that looks available is the B2491BA HP Mirrordisk/UX for Servers. The price is 2k for a two socket box for the license, the price looks good I just want to insure that its going to work.

I was told by HP that I should just buy it on line license regardless that its going to be on a workstation instead of the server.
