server license for workstation possible?

Latest response

Is it possible to use a server license for a RHEL 6.5 workstation? I renewed my academic licenses recently and it seems that i got the wrong licenses. The old license has worked with server and workstation. Can i "upgrade" a workstation to a server without reinstalling or do i need to buy a new license?

Best,

The variant purchased must match the hardware certification entry stated at http://hardware.redhat.com/. You'll have to reinstall to move from one variant to another.

Take a look at:

Many thanks for the clarification. I have ordered a new license.
