License keys are encoded to authorize use of up to three different products and consequently, the same key might appear up to three separate times in the database, once for each product licensed by that key. The number of seats permitted by the key are applied in full to each product authorized by the key. A key authorizing five seats and two products authorizes five seats for each of the two products.
Six types of licenses are available:
Free Flexible Quantity. ProLiant Essential products can optionally ship with one free, permanent license and corresponding key of this type. The number of seats permitted by this license depends on the product and the product team.
Flexible Quantity. This license offers full, unlimited functionality for an unlimited time and for a specific number of seats purchased, up to 50,000.
Activation Key Agreement. This license offers full, unlimited functionality for an unlimited time. This license represents an expected upper limit on the number of seats, up to 50,000.
Demo. This license offers full, unlimited functionality for a limited time and a specific number of seats. The license determines the number of days the key allows the product to function.
