Upgrading CPUs and licenses

Upgrading CPUs and licenses

Upgrading CPUs and licenses


I have a couple of servers that are going to have extra CPU's installed. We have bought extra licenses for account for this, but does anyone know how you go about applying the license when upgrading the CPU's?



RE: Upgrading CPUs and licenses

you don't say which version you are using, but as far as i know you don't have to do anything but buy the license, at least since IBM bought Informix, for they do no longer request  to "brand" the informix-products. in former times you had to enter a serial-number and a key on installation, which is no longer necessary.

if you need further information just ask your reseller, he should know.

RE: Upgrading CPUs and licenses

Thanks. There was no need to do anything with licenses on the actual machines for either Oracle or Informix. Obviously we had to buy the license from oracle/informix to be legal but we just upgraded the machines and rebooted. No need to apply the license. No problems.
