Talking Need license for HA on RHEL?


Dear all,

If we want to use HA on RHEL 6.5, do we need license for High availability ?

Thanks.

If you are using RHEL6.5, then you already should have a license. You don't need license individually for each package/configuration.

but you will need a registered and licensed install of RHEL6.5
you "can" use rhel without a license but you basically will not be able to install anything without it
like the security updates

Actually, all the HA packages (including their latest iteration of the HA stack, GFS2, and things like clvm) are on a totally separate channel. You need an additional license for it, yes - above and beyond a standard RHEL license.

Or you can use CentOS / Scientific Linux instead.

Yes it correct. it's need license for HA on Red Hat even though you have license for Red Hat.

Red Hat is a company name and not a product name.

The Red Hat products (RHEL, HA, LB, DS, JBoss, RHEV, etc) need individual licenses.

Thanks druuna. Your answer made me more clear about Red Hat Products.
