Purchasing or obtaining licenses

Purchasing factory-integrated (embedded) software and hardware provides the best licensing experience because the license is delivered on the hardware and HPE OneView automatically adds the licenses to the license pool on discovery of the hardware.

If you purchase nonintegrated licenses, you must activate and register the licenses using the Hewlett Packard Enterprise licensing portal at https://myenterpriselicense.hpe.com. After you register your licenses, you add the license keys to the appliance (see Add a license key to HPE OneView for more information). For examples, see Licensing scenarios.
