Quantity of OSs required for installing OSs on multiple Huawei servers


The following rules explain the quantity of OSs required for installing OSs on multiple servers, regardless of the server vendor. If licenses are not involved, an OS can be installed on multiple servers. If licenses are involved, there are three cases:
1. An OS can be installed only on one server.
2. An OS can be installed on multiple servers, but the number of login users is restricted.
3. An OS can be installed for only one CPU. This is usually the case for midrange computers and virtual machines.

You can use the boot disk (ServiceCD) delivered with the server to perform the installation.
