Is every Solaris Zone (container) on a physical server counted as a separate
sybase 15 license?

if I run the following, it appears that each zone uses a license...

$SYABASE/15/SYSAM-2_0/bin/sysam status -f

The `hostid` on each zone on a physical server is the same...

Seems like all the zones on a physical server should only count a one
license...


tips?

AFAIK, each zone would be a separate license as each zone is a separate
(virtual) machine. Best check with Sybase Sales

Sybase does not recognize soft partitioning. Disregarding how many
cpus you export into a zone, as to Sybase licensing is concerned, you
have to license ALL cpus on the machine. Then you can setup as many
zones as you want, since the licenses for the machine in general has
been purchased.
