When using profiles, you should consider the following peculiarities of licensing of Security Servers added to the profile:

  • Upon expiry of the license term counted from the date when the active key was added, the active key is automatically substituted with the additional key on each Security Server within a profile, according to the time of the physical server on which the Security Server is deployed. This is important when, for example, the Security Servers of a profile are located in different time zones.
  • In the Administration Console, in the details pane of the Profiles -> <profile name> -> Licensing node, the list of keys and license expiry dates for each of the added keys are shown according to the time of the Administration Console. For example, if a license supported by an active key has expired according to the time of the Administration Console and an additional key has been added, the details pane will show only the additional key and its properties.
  • You cannot add, modify, or remove a key for a separate Security Server added to a profile. You can add, modify, or remove a key for the entire profile only, and this key applies to all Security Servers within the profile.
  • Once a Security Server has been added to a profile, the license of this profile is applied to it even if this Security Server had a different active license before it was added to this profile. The active key of the Security Server is replaced with the active key of the profile.
  • After a Security Server has been removed from a profile, the license of that profile still applies to this Security Server. The details pane of the Licensing node still shows the active key of the profile for this Security Server.

Depending on the application deployment scenario, keys should be added according to the following licensing schemes:

  • If the application is used on standalone Microsoft Exchange Servers, a separate key must be added for each server.
  • If the application is used on a cluster of Microsoft Exchange Servers, it suffices to add a single key that covers the entire cluster.
  • If the application is used on Microsoft Exchange Servers that are part of DAG, it suffices to add a single key that covers the entire DAG configuration.
  • If you use profiles to manage several Security Servers, you have to add a single key for a profile. The key will be applied to all Security Servers within a profile.
