Novell® Open Enterprise Server 2.0
Novell Software License Agreement
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY INSTALLING, DOWNLOADING OR OTHERWISE USING THE
SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, DO NOT
DOWNLOAD, INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE AND, IF APPLICABLE, RETURN THE ENTIRE UNUSED PACKAGE TO THE
RESELLER WITH YOUR RECEIPT FOR A REFUND. THE SOFTWARE MAY NOT BE SOLD, TRANSFERRED, OR FURTHER
DISTRIBUTED EXCEPT AS AUTHORIZED BY NOVELL.
This Novell Software License Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between You (an entity or a person) and Novell, Inc.
(“Novell”). The software product identified in the title of this Agreement, any media and accompanying documentation (collectively
the “Software”) is protected by the copyright laws and treaties of the United States (“U.S.”) and other countries and is subject to the
terms of this Agreement. Any update or support release to the Software that You may download or receive that is not accompanied
by a license agreement expressly superseding this Agreement is Software and governed by this Agreement. If the Software is an
update or support release, then You must have validly licensed the version and quantity of the Software being updated or
supported in order to install or use the update or support release.
The Software may include or be bundled with other software programs licensed under different terms and/or licensed by a licensor
other than Novell. Use of any software programs accompanied by a separate license agreement is governed by that separate
license agreement. Any third party software that may be provided with the Software is included for use at Your option.
LICENSED USE
"User” means a user object in a single directory tree (or other class of object that contains data representing a person, such as
objects containing credit card information or PIN numbers) that has (a) access or use rights to any portion of the Software, or (b)
access or use rights to products (devices, hardware, or software) being managed by the Software, regardless of whether the user
object is assigned to a person or device. User objects (or other classes of objects) representing the same person that are linked to
each other within a single tree and/or linked across multiple trees count as only one User.
“Processor” means a microprocessor or other form of central processing unit that accesses shared resources. A dual-core or multicore processor (an integrated circuit with two or more microprocessors or central processing units plugged into the same socket)
shall be considered a single Processor.
"Workgroup services" means any of the services included with Open Enterprise Server 2 or the Novell Open Workgroup Suite, and
includes: Novell iPrint, Novell iFolder®, Novell Dynamic Storage Technology, Novell Cluster Services™, Novell GroupWise®, Novell
ZENworks®, Novell Storage Services™, Novell eDirectory™, and Novell iManager.
License Grants.
Novell Open Enterprise Server. The Novell Open Enterprise Server Software may be installed and used on the NetWare ® platform,
the Linux* platform, or both. Additional restrictions apply to Your deployment of Novell Open Enterprise Server on the Linux
platform. Please see the applicable license grant(s) below to determine Your licensed use of the Novell Open Enterprise Server
Software. Only one User may use all of the software programs in the Novell Open Enterprise Server Software (unless otherwise
indicated by the license agreement accompanying a specific software program). The Novell Open Enterprise Server license does
not allow use of individual programs included in the Novell Open Enterprise Server product by multiple Users.
NetWare Platform Deployment. You must acquire a User license for each User. Each person who accesses or uses the
Software must have at least one user object uniquely assigned to that person and access the Software through the user object.
Provided that You comply with the requirements in this paragraph and elsewhere in this Agreement, You are authorized to use
an unlimited number of copies of the Software.
Linux Platform Deployment. You must acquire a User license for each User. Each person who accesses or uses the
Software must have at least one user object uniquely assigned to that person and access the Software through the user object.
Provided that You comply with the requirements in this paragraph and elsewhere in this Agreement, You are authorized to use
an unlimited number of copies of the SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server 10 portion of the Software (“SLES 10”) to run OES
services for licensed OES Users. In addition, You may use an unlimited number of copies of SLES 10 in support of any other
software product You elect to use to service, support, secure or manage licensed OES Users. However, the foregoing license
grants do not permit You to use SLES 10 (or any updates thereto provided in connection with Your OES licenses) other than for
licensed OES Users. Use of the Software deployed on the Linux platform may be on a physical server or a virtual server
environment and is limited to use on the x86 and x86-64 architectures.
The Linux platform provided with the Software is a modular operating system. Most of the components are open source
packages, developed independently, and accompanied by separate license terms. Your license rights with respect to individual
components accompanied by separate license terms are defined by those terms; nothing in this Agreement shall restrict, limit,
or otherwise affect any rights or obligations You may have, or conditions to which You may be subject, under such license
terms. While the license terms for a component may authorize You to distribute the component, You may not use any Novell
trademarks in distributing the component, whether or not the component contains Novell trademarks. The Software includes a
copy of MySQL in binary code form and in source code form; with respect to the copy in binary code form, Your license rights
with respect to that component are, at your election, the GNU General Public License (all versions) or the above license grant
for Novell Open Enterprise Server itself.
Evaluation Software. If the Software is an evaluation version or is provided to You for evaluation purposes, then Your license to
use the Software is limited solely to internal evaluation purposes and in accordance with the terms of the evaluation offering under
which You received the Software and expires 90 days from installation (or such other period as may be indicated within the
Software). Upon expiration of the evaluation period, You must discontinue use of the Software, return to an original state any
actions performed by the Software, and delete the Software entirely from Your system. The Software may contain an automatic
disabling mechanism that prevents its use after a certain period of time, so You should back up Your system and take other
measures to prevent any loss of files or data.
RESTRICTIONS
License Restrictions. Novell reserves all rights not expressly granted to You. The Software is licensed for Your internal use only.
You may not (1) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software except and only to the extent it is expressly permitted
by applicable law; (2) modify, alter, rent, timeshare host or lease the Software or sublicense any of Your rights under this
Agreement; or (3) transfer the Software or Your license rights under this Agreement, in whole or in part, without written permission
by Novell.
Suite Licenses. If Your license to use the Software is for a suite of products, then for each license only one user may use the
products in the suite. The suite license does not allow use of individual products in the suite by multiple users if licensed on a user
basis or multiple devices if licensed on a device or server basis.
Upgrade Protection. If You purchased upgrade protection or maintenance under a Novell program for this Software, the upgrade
protection or maintenance only entitles You to upgrades of the Software as a whole and does not entitle You to upgrades of any
component programs or products bundled with the Software or any individual products included in a suite if the Software is licensed
as a suite of products. You may separately purchase upgrade protection for individual components of the Software if permitted by
the applicable Novell policies and programs.
Upgrade Software. This section applies to You if You have purchased the Software based upon upgrade pricing. “Original
Product” means the product from which You are upgrading. You are authorized to use the Software only if You are the authorized
user of the Original Product and You meet the following conditions: (1) You have acquired the right to use the Software solely to
replace the Original Product that You acquired legally and that is qualified to be upgraded with the Software under the Novell
policies existing at the time You acquired the Software; (2) You installed and used the Original Product in accordance with the
terms and conditions of the applicable license agreement; and (3) You will not sell or otherwise transfer possession of the Original
Product.
Support. Novell has no obligation to provide support unless You purchase an offering that expressly includes support services. If
You make such a purchase and no separate agreement specifically applies to the support services, then the terms of this
Agreement will govern the provision of such support services (“Services”). For more information on Novell's current support
offerings, see http://www.novell.com/support.

use or modification to the Software voids this warranty. THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE

the amount You paid to Novell for the portion of the Services that fail to comply with this warranty. As files may be altered or
damaged in the course of Novell providing technical services, You agree to take appropriate measures to isolate and back up Your
systems.

sold by an entity other than Novell. NOVELL DOES NOT WARRANT NON-NOVELL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. ANY SUCH
PRODUCTS OR SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS. WARRANTY SERVICE IF ANY FOR NON-NOVELL
PRODUCTS IS PROVIDED BY THE PRODUCT LICENSOR IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE APPLICABLE LICENSOR
WARRANTY.
EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE RESTRICTED BY LAW, NOVELL DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL IMPLIED
WARRANTIES INCLUDING ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR

IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. NOVELL DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES WILL SATISFY YOUR
REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED. Some

PERSON (WHETHER IN ONE INSTANCE OR A SERIES OF INSTANCES) EXCEED 1.25 TIMES THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU
FOR THE SOFTWARE OR SERVICES OUT OF WHICH SUCH CLAIM AROSE (OR $50 (U.S.) IF YOU RECEIVED THE
SOFTWARE FREE OF CHARGE). The above exclusions and limitations will not apply to claims relating to death or personal
injury. In those jurisdictions that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of damages, Novell's liability shall be limited or excluded to
the maximum extent allowed within those jurisdictions.
GENERAL TERMS
Term. This Agreement becomes effective on the date You legally acquire the Software and will automatically terminate if You
breach any of its terms. If the Software is provided to You on a subscription basis, then Your right to possess or use the Software
will terminate at the end of the applicable subscription period. Upon termination of this Agreement or any applicable subscription
period, You must destroy the original and all copies of the Software or return them to Novell and delete the Software from Your

Benchmark Testing. This benchmark testing restriction applies to You if You are a software developer or licensor or if You are
performing testing on the Software at the direction of or on behalf of a software developer or licensor. You may not, without
Novell's prior written consent not to be unreasonably withheld, publish or disclose to any third party the results of any benchmark
test of the Software. If You are a licensor of products that are functionally similar to or compete with the Software (“Similar
Products”), or are acting on behalf of such a licensor, and You publish or disclose benchmark information on the Software in
violation of this restriction, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Similar Product's end user license agreement, and in
addition to any other remedies Novell may have, Novell shall have the right to perform benchmark testing on Similar Products and
to disclose and publish that benchmark information and You hereby represent that You have authority to grant such right to Novell.
