Juniper Networks Enables enterprise access appliance as a license server
A Juniper ACCESS-LICENSE-SVR License allows you to configure an enterprise access device as a license server. Having this type of configuration has several benefits, including reduced costs associated with software licensing. It will allow you flexibility and the ability to distribute or redistribute license capacity as needed within your organization. This reduces the need for purchasing additional licenses for software by employing enterprise licensing where the licenses are assigned directly from the server, regardless of location. For larger organizations, the Juniper ACCESS-LICENSE-SVR License reduces costs and allows administrators to apply licensing where needed.
The Juniper ACCESS-LICENSE-SVR License cannot be applied to virtual appliances and does not include the enterprise access device hardware needed for its usage. When the license has been deployed and configured on a device, that server will be isolated from other services. Once applied, the server will not be able to lease additional licenses from other license services because it cannot be both a server and client at the same time. Access to the server is limited to only administrators as all end-user client connections will be terminated.
