Lisence Suse Manager

can the suse manager license be used together with vmware esxi, for example if we have 3 vmware hosts is it necessary for 3 suse manager licenses? and can suse-manager be used for custom images other than suse images such as ubuntu / red hat ?

I’m not an expert on SUSE Manager licensing so I suggest that you contact SUSE via Subscriptions and Services Support | SUSE

However to answer some of your questions

  • VMware hosts are not managed by SUSE Manager, instead VMware guests (depending on OS) can be
  • SUSE Manager can manage Ubuntu and Red Hat OSes - see Supported Clients and Features :: SUSE Manager Documentation
