Licensing and Hardware Components - HP UCMDB 10.30

Hello All,

I am planning for installation of HP uCMDB10.30, please suggest on the following:

a) How licensing in HP uCMDB 10.30 works, as far I know it is on the basis of OSI, but I have to discover Servers, Switches, Routers, Access Points, Applications and Middleware's. 

b) Will it be an issue if we consider - 1 DFP Server, 1 UCMDB Server and DB server for installation of HP uCMDB 10.30

c) What are the best practices regarding hardware components like server names, VLANs / subnets which we need to follow during hardware setup.

Thanks in Advance!!!

Re: Licensing and Hardware Components - HP UCMDB 10.30



first of all, consider deploying directly UCMDB 10.33 which is a full installer, you don't need to go through 10.30, you can install 10.33 directly.

You will need to align your deployment with the Sizing Guide


For the license consumption, you can use the trial period of 22 days in order to see what you can discover. Up until 10.33, the license is calculated on for the discovered nodes as UD Full or UD Inventory license types.
Most likely you will need MDR licenses if you want 3rd party integrations.


This is just a small intro, you will catch the wave once you get familiar with the product.

Kind regards,
