Using RHEL Server license for Workstation/Laptop

Latest response

I know this can be done in the past, but need confirmation that we can use RHEL Server license for a workstation/laptop. Do we also need to add the system to our subscription? I'm not an system administrator, but do manage the licenses and have been asked to use server licenses for 3 workstations.


Hi Sharon,

As of RHEL 8 there is only one subscription model ... you can select Workstation in the Anaconda installer. :)
Regarding the need to attach the system to the subscription, if you enable Simple Content Access, then no.


Yes, you can legitimately use a RHEL Server subscription on a workstation or laptop device.
