Hi Slava,


Hope all is well with you :)


You will require one License File that includes licensing for two Nodes (CCM Servers)


You will require two different types of Licenses (Node License with seats that covers the number of proposed users and Device License Units/DLU's for phones);


**Licenses are generated for requested Cisco CallManager nodes (in your case 2) (the number of servers in a Cisco CallManager cluster - with seats *Node License) and the phones that are associated with those nodes (DLU's on a separate License).





***Note - Upload the license file only on the first node of Cisco CallManager cluster.

You need to buy 2 licenses 1 for each server.


You will however register these license to the mac address of the publisher server.


You will load these licenses on the publisher server.

Hi Slava,


My friend Deji explained this more consisely (+5 points Dej :)


You do have to purchase 1 License per Node. Here is an example of the License file from Cisco (for CCM 5.x but similar look and feel);


Permanent CCM_Node licenses


# Optional usage agreement, legal language, tracking information

# Some other comments

INCREMENT CCM_NODE cisco 5.0 permanent uncounted \

VENDOR_STRING=3000BCD4EE59D1.0

ileVersion> \

HOSTID=000bcd4ee59d \

NOTICE="200508261405391621 \

" SIGN="19B3 4C6C 25AC 6D22 4D75 DE6A 656B 08C5 \

30E4 16DB 771B 1393 9DC1 DBC4 C5AA 15CC 6E6C B7B8 895A DCBA \

B40F C551 2625 1C97 F20D 9977 6CFF 3603 081E 6FF2"


The preceding license file includes the following information:


No expiration date for this license exists as indicated by the keyword permanent.


This license file provides three licenses for the version 5.0 of the feature CCM_NODES.


The Cisco specific fieldLicFileID, identifies this license file.



Hope this helps!

Rob
