Purpose

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) also known as the ODA HA (High Availability) uses a Capacity On-Demand CPU software licensing feature. ODA Capacity On-Demand allows you to easily scale up to 48 processor cores without incurring the costs and downtime usually associated with hardware upgrades as ALL cores already exist within the ODA hardware. Each ODA server (2 servers per ODA) uses a Core Key to set the proper licensed count.

This document provides guidance on common questions and problems regarding the ODA Core Key generation and application process. This note does not apply to the ODA Lite series which includes Small, Medium and Large (S/M/L) single server versions.
