What is license for SLES8?
Per server (as for SCO UL-based server) or something else?

Depends if you speak about the medium (you can install as many
servers as you like with one medium) or the updates/maintenace/
support part. The last one is per server (I don't know if there
are special contracts for larger sites, but I think so).

Sorry, I don't understand completely.
Updates(maintenance) is not the same thing as support.
For support one need support contract :-)

And to get the updates and fixes you need a maintenance contract.

At least with SLES7- 1 year maintanance is included with box.

Yes, you can only by SLES7 with a 1 year maintenance contract.

Or I need to get support contract for SLES8?
But why there is price for SLES8 with one year maintenace included with box?

Because we don't sell it without.

Sorry, just because there is no signed agreement this is _not_ contract.
At least, in Russia.

Could you, as Suse employeer, mail me SLES8 license text?

Please ask your official supplier.

There is no official supplier in Russia :-)
Please, don't tell me about AltLinux, they don't sell Suse business products, but they are official reseller. Funny, isn't it? :-)

Could you or someone else tell me where can I read SLES8 license?
IMHO, this should be very easy to find product license.
For instance, SCO write in FAQ that their UL based distribution
is lincensed per server.
But Suse is exception :-)
