SBO 6.5 server Installation and license

Hello Everyone,

I am not clear about licensing of SBO 6.5, I installed Business One 6.5 on server only and no client copy now I have two questions

A) Do I need to install client copy on server and apply for license if so when I install client copy other than server than I have to configure ODBC for each workstation and apply license for each workstation.

B) Can I leave server installation as it is now and whenever I do client copy installation on each workstation confgure ODBC connection of that each client to server database and apply for license for client copy.

How do we install server and client copy on same machine or server on one machine and clients on each machine and connect them to server database.

Please help me clarify this confusion...

Thanks and Regards

    I've never configured any odbc thing for SBO. I simply enter the servername of the sql server I'm using, do a scan for databases in the extended login screen and I can login from any system.

    The way I install usually is server-install. Next, sbo client install on server from sbo-shr on that server. Startup client on server, log in as described, get string for keyfile and register it.

    Any workstation that has sbo client (or installs it from sbo-shr on server) can connect to server through servername. Server handles licenses (it runs a service for that).

    Hope this helps,

      Thanks Jacques for the valuble Information,

      I installed Bone on server then created client copy on server and also on my machine and was able to connect to Bone server by giving server name when I start Bone. It's working fine.

      I installed Bone 6.5 SP1 patch 7 and even SDK no issues till now.

      Thank you
