Hi. I'm going to deploy HA Solarwinds Orion Cluster, so I have a questions about licensing.
I want to create MPE Primary + MPE Secondary (Failover) installation with one VIP.
This means I need two same licences for Solarwind Orion (Primary + Secondary) plus one HA licence to join both servers to HA, - am I right?
We run a similar setup except we also have APE's and we have all of our products licensed on our primary servers (NPM,MCM,IPAM etc) and a HA licenses for our failover servers.
So in you instance you would license all of your modules on the primary server and just buy a HA license for your failover server, you don't need to license both Primary / Failover servers AND buy a HA License.
The HA license takes care of the licensing on the failover server.
You just purchase a HA licence for the secondary server. You install using the installer and select Scalability. Once installed. You go to licence manager within the web console and assign the HA licence.
