HP-UX and OpenVMS License and Support

  Index

You do not initially pay for HP-UX and OpenVMS license and support fees on an Instant Capacity cell board.

When you acquire the usage rights for a cell board by purchasing the Right to Use (RTU) product, you must additionally pay for the incremental HP-UX or OpenVMS license and support costs for each core that is activated. That is, the HP-UX or OpenVMS license and support costs are based on a “per active core” basis and not included as part of the cell board RTU.

If activation of an Instant Capacity cell board does not increase the number of active cores, then you do not have to pay any incremental HP-UX or OpenVMS license and support fees.

Your system must be properly licensed for the HP-UX or OpenVMS Operating Environment (OE) when activating the Instant Capacity cell board. Software licenses for third party software may also be needed. Check with your application software vendor for licensing requirements.
