This client management license (ML) suite allows any number of nonserver operating system environments (OSEs) to be managed by a set of System Center server technologies, as long as only one user has access to them. If more than one user has access to a certain OSE or set of OSEs, a client ML suite is necessary for each user. The suite contains the following licenses:
- System Center Data Protection Manager User Client ML
- System Center Operations Manager User Client ML
- System Center Service Manager User Client ML Note: With the release of Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010, all DPM MLs now include the DPM server software and license. Organizations can use this software and license to run only one instance of DPM server, even if they request more than one DPM ML. An OSE ML suite is also available. The OSE ML suite allows one nonserver device to be managed by the same System Center technologies as the user ML suite. When a device has multiple OSEs, a separate ML suite is required for each OSE managed by the System Center technologies listed above. Server ML suites are also available. A server ML suite is required for each server device managed by the applicable System Center technologies.
Acquiring the Installation Media and License Key: MLs do not require media, license keys, or setup codes. Installation media for DPM server software will be shipped to you free of charge. Note: Although organizations can request multiple MLs, they will be licensed for only one DPM server installation.
