|HP 3000 user license pricing relief
Q. How can I upgrade a 3000 CPU and obtain the same level of user license and not pay a disproportionate amount to get these software licenses? I know of two HP 3000 sites that are prime candidates for upgrading 9x7 or 955 boxes to 9x9 machines. Our major cost is not the hardware, but MPE and associated software. Both of us have been unable to get budget approval for these costs. Other people examining our quotes question the costs and Ive tried to redirect our efforts to lower cost Unix boxes.
Does HP examine the user licensing on
9x9 boxes to have more user
license options? I may need more CPU, but
could live with a very
small user license. I have over 300 users,
but never exceed your
32-simultaneous user license. Why would I
want to buy a hundred
or unlimited license to satisfy the minimum
license for a 9x9
