DB2 8.2 Workgroup Server Edition limitattions

DB2 8.2 Workgroup Server Edition is supposed to be limited to servers with 4
CPU's and 16 GB of memory. It can be licensed by user, or by number of
CPU's.

Are these limitations hard or soft? In other words, if the server with WSE
8.2 has more the 4 CPU's, will DB2 use them? If the server has more than 16
GB of memory, can DB2 be configured to use more than 16 GB of memory for a
single database (without swapping)?

You simply cannot install DB2 Workgroup Edition on machine with more
than 4CPU or 16GB memory, it is hard licence limitation. If you like
to use more CPUs or memory you should upgrade licence to Enterprise
Edition

This is just a temporary situation that will be rectified in January with
upgrade to DB2 V9 Enterprise and is OK with the IBM sales rep. But the
current installation has 32GB of memory on the server (only about 13GB is
used for DB2) so I know you can install it. I am more interested in the CPU
limitation as to whether more CPU's can be temporarily added (and used)
until they can upgrade to Enterprise in January.
