HP-UX Processor Installation guide & license issue

Hi,

Iam using two HP-UX boxes one is consist of two processor.

As per my client i need to remove one processor and install it on another server.

Note: The another server has only one processer after installation of this processor does it need processor license.

My Question:
===========
let's say Server A & Server B
#Server A consist of two processor
#One processor will be move from Server A to Server B.

# Is it smooth to move processor from server A
#Does Server B require processor license
#If yes how to get & install processor license.

Your valuable input will be appreciated......

Hi,
can you please post the model of Server A & B as well as the OS Version you are running?

If we are talking about actual versions and servers, in my opinion this is only possible using global icap.

Shalom,

That depends on the software we are talking about.

Oracle claims a right to unlimited user license at $40K per core. Watch out for costs on quad core box.

Most HP software is licensed by the physical CPU. So in this scenario, migrating permanently from a two cpu system to a one cpu system will save you some support costs.

Thanks all for their valuable inputs.



Problem solved : From ONE cell board to another processor moved successfully by locking and unlocking processors.
