Same license on two servers: are there any drawbacks?

We are in the process of migration of our old bug tracking system to JIRA. Our JIRA server is up and running, with license purchased. We verify that we imported all needed information and fix import errors. As long as the JIRA server is "in production", before any major fix we backup JIRA, restore backup in a local workstation and apply the fix to check that everything is correct before applying fix on production.

The thing is that when we restore backup on a local workstation it uses the same license as the production server.

Are there any drawbacks? We do not use the second server in production and no other users log in on it but just an admin (to run the tests).

Technically, it's a breach of your licence, but it won't break anything.  Easily solved though - go to your my.Atlassian account and grab a "developer" licence for the second server.  They're for cases like this.

Hi Sam,

             I believe, at the end of the day, it counts number of active users who are using the valid license. Make sure the count doesn't exceed license limit. As Nic said, its better to try developers license.

They're on separate servers, they are not aware of each other's users.
