2. Oxford University Site Licences

Oxford University has site licences for a number of Novell products. Some of these licences are fully funded and are available without charge to departments and colleges; for others a charge is made. In general, the University also pays maintenance on these products, entitling users to any new versions as they become available.

Note that not all of the site licences are administered centrally by IT Services. For site licences administered by other parts of the University, IT Services generally maintains contacts with the administrators of the licences and can forward requests to participate, or provide licence codes on request as necessary. However, as IT Services does not manage these licences, it has no control over whether maintenance will continue for these products in the future.

To obtain the installation media for most of the products, you should download the evaluation versions from Novell. These evaluation versions are fully featured, and simply need to be licenced or activated using the appropriate codes in order to use them beyond the evaluation period (usually 90 days). See the contact details in the list below in order to obtain the appropriate codes. Note that an exception to this is Groupwise; the evaluation version cannot be turned into a fully licensed version. Instead you will need to obtain the full installation media via the contact details given below.
