R10 to R11

R10 to R11

R10 to R11

So rusty on IPO now lol

If I have a customer running 10.1 and need to add a licence to them, I know I have to upgrade all the licencing to R11 licences.

However my question is if I then apply the R11 licence file to the system will it still just run at 10.1 - I dont need to actually upgrade the system as well do I?


RE: R10 to R11

I think I have now answered this myself and any PLDS licence listed as an actual R11 and ot Any licence will only work on a system on R11.

So my next question is does anyone know if the physical SE licence and the virtual SE licence are actually properly checked and if I have a physical SE licence and install a virtual SE system will it actually care?


RE: R10 to R11

Yes you have answered your own question.
The SE license allows you to install the Server edition application either on a physical system or virtual it does not matter as long as the WebLM host ID match's, which is done by the Mac Address. If it doesn't match you can regenerate the license for the Virtual system at no extra cost.

RE: R10 to R11

So to confirm, if I have a system that was licenced as physical SEs on R9, then migrated to physical servers on R10 and PLDS, if I replace a physical server with a virtual server (we need to move the secondary server from a DC where it is on tin to a DC where it will be a VM) the licencing wont care?


RE: R10 to R11

R11 licenses run on R10.1, I have a IP500 were I got upgrade licenses for R11 but decided to install R10.1.
Don't think there's any unique licenses for R11 that R10.1 wouldn't recognize, earlier release didn't work tho.

Long time since I've tested the SE licenses, the virtual SE license does cost more than the regular but dunno if it actually checks it.

RE: R10 to R11

Hi Janni

I have today taken my in house system which is on R11 and just has standard SE licences in it and attached a new Virtual Secondary SE to it and it just took the licence and didnt care that it was a virtual and the licence wasnt.

Looking through PLDSkeys files I noticed they all look the same

On a physical R11 SE it is listed as

<Feature type="counted"><Name>VALUE_IPO_EDITION_SERVER</Name><DisplayName>Server Edition</DisplayName><Value>5</Value>

On a virtual SE it is listed as

<Feature type="counted"><Name>VALUE_IPO_EDITION_SERVER</Name><DisplayName>Server Edition</DisplayName><Value>1</Value>

And on a physical R10 SE it is listed as

<Feature type="counted"><Name>VALUE_IPO_EDITION_SERVER</Name><DisplayName>Server Edition</DisplayName><Value>5</Value>

So that is an R11 in our office, an R10 virtual and an R10 physical, all showing exactly the same licence type in PLDSkeys.
