I understand your points and to be honest I also understand that Russia is not always afforded access to those things that one might get in the U.S. or Western Europe.
Also, after roaming around the SuSE site and looking at other information I could gather it seems clear to me that their isn't much clear information about this at all.


I agree.
There are at least licenses for RH AS at redhat.com/licenses.
I don't understand them completely, but I can at least read them ;-)
I'll try to understand how EULA permits to make RH AS copies but
Service Agreement forces to buy each server ;-)

An ad hoc solution might be to have a license for one machine and to use that machine to gain access to the packages for the others. In otherwords, download the package and copy it to the other machines. Iron out the problems on the one licensed machine and then replicate this on the other. I do bear in mind that if you machines are not the same or have different configs this may not be a reliable work around. It's just a thought.
Michael Hasenstein wrote here that I can't do this- this violates license.
May be, but I don't shure that this is GPL compatible.
This is why I want to read license for maintenance service :-)

I don't really know exactly what is entailed in the license agreement since the information isn't clear and as for service in Russia only the SuSE reps would be able to answer that question.

There is no Suse representatives in Russia.
I.e. I have no place to call, so I'm asking here.


Thank you!
