    ok here is my question:

    I would like to purchase an enterprise license with 2 CPU to get the cache functionality for a project I have on hand but most of the test are done on a test VM server, we normally drop or rebuild the servers. Can I port or de-register/register the license from one server to another until I get it in production?

    Can I upgrade from 2 to 8 CPU later ?

    mh so if I create am Image of my server in amazon ec2 to backup everything and for some reason the server needs to be launched again the license wont work because of a "hardware change" :-/ this complicate things a bit ..

    if you can predict the hardware change, should not be a issue.
    before change, you issue command:
    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -m

    after change, you issue
    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -r

    there is a 3 day overlap period.

    sometimes we cannot :S .. I had the experiences of getting from amazon tech support "sorry but the there was a hardware degradation in that sector" (what ever that means) or that the server just was unreachable in the middle of the process and we urgently needed to re-launche a new server..

    I ask this paranoic questions because of the type of projects we do. They require very hi availability for a very short time.. they last 2-3 days because of the nature of the project. so we need a very flexible way to re-lauch in bad scenarios.

    any ways, the schema is understood

    You can also always release your license when you need to use it on a different piece of "hardware", though this will shut down the server you were using it on...
