Hostname mismatch issue against license resulting to Software License Breach

Use Case :

We have been deploying Yellowfin application EKS cluster.

We figured out the licensing for Yellowfin is done under specific name which should be accurately matched.

Everytime, we redeploy Yellowfin, respective new pods will be created with default pod-name.


Problems :


1. This will breached the

Yellowfin licence criteria as the hostname will not match with the name of license of software that is issued under.


So, in this case we have to manually rename the hostname of the pod that exactly matches the licensing name.

Only after that , licence will be properly applied.


So, We need a way ,through which the hassle to change the hostname of the pod everytime can be solved .


2. Using the same the database after the redeploying the application is also causing error in licensing, even after we matched

the hostname manually. So, we need to create new database everytime we re-deploy the application.


Is there any way to resolve the above issues ? It will eventually resolved issue against Yellowfin software licence in our case.

Hey Srijal,

Thanks for reaching out with this.

for your issues:

1. This license will breach if the hostname doesn't match. We have licenses that can account for this however it would be best to reach out to your CSM to get the license that best suits this implementation

2. If deploying a new instance of Yellowfin You will want a new database for these instances. Otherwise writes from one environment can overwrite or corrupt the database for a separate environment rendering it inoperable.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding this info!

Best,

Jared
