DEV/QA cluster license

We are an enterprise customer and want to upgrade current PVE clusters (x3) from the enterprise repo.
Before we upgrade our production clusters, we would like to test it out in our DEV/QA cluster first. Will this require separate license for nodes in DEV/QA cluster?
This DEV/QA cluster is only used for proxmox testing,

Will this require separate license for nodes in DEV/QA cluster?
Each node/cluster that needs access to Enterprise repo will require a license. If you want to try to work out some deal - you should reach out to your reseller, or to Proxmox

Just use the no-sub repo, it doesn't make sense to pay license for dev/test cluster.
That depends on the value OP's company places on proper testing, especially of the upgrade procedures. While the differences between the no-sub and enterprise repo may be small (at times), it may be completely out of compliance per their company policy to test infrastructure upgrade using different software than the one going into production. One might say that its not really a valid test at all..
