Unanswered: Oracle Standard Edition One and multi-processor system
We've recently acquired an Oracle Standard Edition One license to install on a single processor system that we'll receive this month. The problem is that our current testing system is multi-processor, and we're not allowed to disable one of them... Is it possible to run our Oracle license on this system? Thanks in advance,
I would give your Oracle representative a call. Some licenses are based on processing power, which is double in the event of multi-processor systems, but other licenses are based on the number of seats...
In your post you mention that your "testing system" is multiprocessor. Is this the system you are using to test out the configuration before you install on the eventual production system? Oracle's licensing is properly lenient - nothing will fail to work because it happens to be on a multi-processor system. You can evaluate on your "testing system". If your eventual production system is multi-processor then you should see about updating your license. In the meantime everything should work.
