Licence server on DB node

Is it possible to run the licence node on one of the db node servers?

We currently run the licence node as a vm on an external server. However, we plan to remove that additional server from our environment. Can we move the licence node VM onto one of the physical DB node servers? Or do we need an additional hardware of any kind?

Hi @stefan ,

A license server is mandatory to apply updates. It will be impossible to operate an Exasol Cluster without a license server.

That said, you will need additional hardware or another VM

Hi

can we simply shut down everything, relaunch the licence VM on some other host and reboot DB? Could you please provide something like a short manual on how to move an existing licence server VM to another host?

Thanks in advance
