Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)


Do NCS Linux nodes consume a cluster license ?
Does NCS Linux perform any licensing checks on joining ?


NCS Linux is paper based licensing only. There is not any licensing code checking for licenses. No linux nodes will ever be rejected due to licensing issues. It is still required to aquire proper license for each node but it will not be enforce through the software.
