OpenVMS User Licensing?

» close window

The Question is:

What is the difference between concurrent and interactive licenses

The Answer is :

  Interactive licenses are available on OpenVMS VAX only.
  Concurrent licenses are available on OpenVMS VAX and OpenVMS Alpha.
  Both a concurrent and an interactive user are users that are not logged
  into the OpenVMS system directly, and users that do not pass through
  LOGINOUT or the normal interactive login process, and that have no
  particular direct access to DCL or similar OpenVMS features -- these
  users are expected to be dedicated to a particular set of applications
  and to a predetermined application environment.
  Please see the OpenVMS Software Product Description (SPD) for specific
  details on the OpenVMS licensing options and requirements.  Depending
  on the OpenVMS release, the SPDs are available at:
