oracle user lincese doubt plz?
we are using oracle 9i, with 5 user license .
what does it mean actually?
does it allow more than 5 client computers to connect to oracle db.
ask your sales rep what you actually bought
but guessing you bought 5 named user license, so 5 named people can access the database
Oracle online store
Are you just too lazy to check the licensing in the Oracle online store?
Licenses - For the complete and legal set of definitions, please refer to the Oracle License & Services Agreement.
Named User Plus: is defined as an individual authorized by you to use the programs which are installed on a single server or multiple servers, regardless of whether the individual is actively using the programs at any given time. A non human operated device will be counted as a named user plus in addition to all individuals authorized to use the programs, if such devices can access the programs. If multiplexing hardware or software (e.g., a TP monitor or a web server product) is used, this number must be measured at the multiplexing front end. Automated batching of data from computer to computer is permitted. You are responsible for ensuring that the named user plus per processor minimums are maintained for the programs contained in the user minimum table in the licensing rules section; the minimums table provides for the minimum number of named users plus required and all actual users must be licensed.
