If I want to use a SUSE image (SuSe SLE11 SP3) in an OpenStack public cloud offering, what are the licensing/validation requirements for running that image? and what is the process associated with validation and updating the image?

I'm not sure if I need consistent public network connectivity for the license to validate itself against a SuSe license server on boot each time or if I need a licensing server that sits on that network for my virtual machines to validate against.

Thanks in Advance.
