License types: Server hardware

The following types of licenses are available for managing or monitoring hardware in HPE OneView.

Managed hardware licenses

The following HPE OneView Advanced licenses provide support as listed below, and in addition, enable integration with other products.

HPE OneView Advanced

Provides an HPE OneView Advanced license and an iLO Advanced license.

This license is intended for server hardware and enclosures you want to manage with HPE OneView. See Purchasing or obtaining licenses for more information.

HPE OneView Advanced w/o iLO

Provides an HPE OneView Advanced license only.

This license is intended for server hardware you want to manage with HPE OneView. This license is for servers with iLOs that are already licensed, or server hardware for which you do not require an iLO license. See Purchasing or obtaining licenses for more information.

An HPE OneView Advanced w/o iLO license provides support for all server hardware features on the appliance, with the following exceptions:

  • Server hardware without an iLO Advanced license does not display utilization data.

  • Rack mount servers without an iLO Advanced license cannot access the remote console.

For examples, see Licensing scenarios.

Monitored hardware license

HPE OneView Standard

Provides an HPE OneView Standard license for all monitored server hardware.

This license is automatically selected:

  • for the enclosure when adding a monitored enclosure

  • for the server when adding a monitored server

  • for all ProLiant G6 server blades or G7 BL680c server blades when adding a managed enclosure

HPE OneView does not manage the hardware running with an HPE OneView Standard license. See About monitored enclosures.

When you add an enclosure or rack mount server to the appliance, you must specify one of these licenses. For examples, see Licensing scenarios.

When you add a rack manager, either the HPE OneView Standard license or the HPE OneView Advanced license is automatically applied based on the firmware version installed on the rack manager.
