CES Frontend License

Hi there !

We have a client who purchase CES recently for one server license along with Sitecore connector. Let's call it server#1

Client decided to intoduce another standalone server (#2) to host a new web app which suppose to use the same CES index, and basically CES backend, from server #1. Technically, installation of the CES Fronted on server 2 and connection to CES backend on server #1 is a trivial task (kudos to CES architecture!) . Our question is: Does client require an additional licence to host CES Front-end on server #2 ?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Oleg,

A new license is not needed for a front-end server.
If for any reasons, you are prompted to enter a new license, I would advise to write to your vendor or directly to Coveo support:
