Synopsis
This article describes an issue on how leased licenses are prioritized when a mixture of subscription and perpetual licenses are installed.
Problem or Goal
When a license server has the following licenses installed, what order will the licenses be leased?
  • ACCESS-X600 perpetual license (Eg: ACCESSX600-ADD-1000U)
  • ACCESS Subscription license (Eg: ACCESS-2000U-1YR)
  • CONSEC Subscription license (Eg: CONSEC-5000U-1YR )
Cause
Solution
The expected leasing behavior will be the following order (top to bottom):
  • Hardware specific perpetual licenses**
  • Perpetual licenses**
  • CONSEC/POLSEC subscription licenses
  • ACCESS subscription licenses
** MBR licenses must be installed on the license client to lease perpetual licenses.  If no MBR license is installed, CONSEC/POLSEC subscription licenses will be leased first, then ACCESS subscription licenses. 
List of License SKU's & Lease Order
 License SKUCan be leasable to the following platforms:
Hardware specific perpetual licenseACCESS-X600 Perpetual license (Eg: ACCESSX600-ADD-1000U)MAG platform models only (leasable to both SA and IC personality) with MBR license installed in license client
ACCESS-X500 Perpetual license (Eg : ACCESSX500-ADD-7500U)SA-X500 and IC-X500 platforms only with MBR license installed in license client
Perpetual licenseCONSEC Perpetual license (Eg: CONSEC-ADD-2000U)All platform models of PCS except the SA700 and the VA-DTE virtual appliance.
  • Physical hardware must have a MBR license installed in license client when surrendering or recalling a license.  If licenses are installed on the license server directly, MBR license is not required to lease licenses.
  • VA-SPE do not require an MBR license.
POLSEC Perpetual license (Eg: POLSEC-ADD-100U)All platform models of PCS except the SA700 and the VA-DTE virtual appliance.
  • Physical hardware must have a MBR license installed in license client when surrendering or recalling a license.  If licenses are installed on the license server directly, MBR license is not required to lease licenses.
  • VA-SPE do not require an MBR license.
Subscription LicenseCONSEC Subscription license (Eg : CONSEC-5000U-1YR)All platform models of PCS and VA-SPE(SA) except SA-700
POLSEC Subscription license (Eg : POLSEC-500U-1YR) ​All platform models of PPS and VA-SPE (IC)
ACCESS Subscription license (Eg : ACCESS-1000U-1YR)All platform models of PCS, PPS and VA-SPE

 

Example:


License server has the following licenses installed supporting both MAG and PSA license clients.

  • ACCESS-X600 perpetual license
  • CONSEC Subscription license
  • ACCESS Subscription license
For the MAG license client, the lease order would be:
  • ACCESS-X600 perpetual license**
  • CONSEC Subscription license
  • ACCESS Subscription license
** MBR license will need to be installed on the MAG device to lease ACCESS-X600 perpetual license.

For the PSA license client, the lease order would be:
  • CONSEC/POLSEC subscription license
  • ACCESS subscription license
