Possible to use the "Un-served License" for a production machine?


I am asking this question on behalf of a partner who is trying to set up SMP at a customer site:

One of their clients has 2 Network Cards, in fault tolerance environment (one active at a time), on the Production Machine where SMP needs to be installed. Now, is it possible to use the "Un-served License" for this machine OR "Served License" is the only option?

According to their understanding, Served License does not require the "Host-ID" for the machine where SMP needs to be installed.

    Hi Jeffrey D'Silva

    If you have less SMP (1 or 2) server to install then you can go for unserved license model for production setup. Sybase also recommends to go for Unserved license model if you have less sybase products to manage. Only disadvantage is if product issue found then you can't simply install it in other machine, you must generate separate license file for the host id and license file has to be placed in server itself.

    Served license does not required host id based licenses, but you have to install SYSAM server to manage served licenses. In this case, if issues found with SMP server, then you can install it in some other machine then you map the licenses from SYSAM server.

    I hope this will be helpful to you.
