Oracle License (Learning Purposes)
Posted on 2014-02-14
I need to install two Oracle 11g R2 instances on two different Windows 2008 R2 servers. The servers are virtual servers running on VMware. The Oracle edition will be Oracle Standard Edition on both virtual machines.
The purpose is for me to learn how to do replication, add and remove users, create databases, tables, and so on. In summary, the goal is to learn Oracle administration.
There are also other virtual machines, not running Oracle, running in this environment. Here is my question:
Do I need to buy a license for this?
I have looked for this answer both here at Experts Exchange and on other sites, including Oracle, but I cannot find a convincing answer.
