Good Day. Our environment has a production database server, and a backup server that is sometimes used for training & testing. We are upgrading from version 10 to version 16, and I'm struggling with licensing. I purchased two CPU licenses, with the intent of having two virtual machines, each configured with a single 2-core vCPU.
In the SAP support portal, I provided the information to create a system and the SAP web site assigned both CPU licenses to it and generated an installation key. Does that mean I can go ahead and create the two VM's as described above and use the same installation key on both? My search efforts on the customer portal didn't turn up anything useful, other than maybe I will need to use the dblic utility after the fact to limit the server to 1 CPU.
Thanks in advance

Assuming everything was done correctly in the portal, you can use the same key for both server installations.
Without actually seeing your entitlements, I can't say whether or not you will need to change the licensing on your servers with the dblic utility.
