DI Server License info

I accidentally replied to an answered thread, but this is a slightly different question.

How is the license specified for DI Server? Is the license I need called SDK Tools? (Looked at the License administration in SAP and there's one for SDK Tools)

I assume the demo database already has the DI Server license because the login works for that, but it doesn't work on the company database.

Can anyone confirm this?

    Hi Victor,

    The DI Server requires its own license and is different from the SDK Tools (it should appear as DI-Server in your license file).

    I'm actually surprised that you can test on a demo database but not a production database (ie if you are not licensed then I would expect it to fail regardless of the database). Is it possible that your testing on the demo database was done during the first 30 days (when it would be running under an evaluation license)?

    Also note that SAP are stating that the client needs to have CPU licensing for SQL Server if they wish to use the DI Server.

    Kind Regards,

      Does this mean I can actually get a DI Server license, test out the application and then decide whether I want to continue with it by getting the CPU license for SQL Server?
