About number license required for multi-boot machine

Dear all,

My company want to setup a testing machine for OS testing (e.g. "Windows 7", "Windows 8", etc). The PC would be installed in multi-boot mode (only one OS would be running at one time). My company is using a ePO Server as centeralize control; Assume 7 different OS would be installed in the testing machine, how many anti-virus license would be required for this scenior.

Thanks for any reply.

If it's anything like the consumer licensing that would entaiil using 7.   The support desk would be able to enlighten you better.

Enterprise Licensing is per node so i would say you'd only need 1 License.

Also this configuration would only register as a single managed system in ePO, as the computer would communicate to the ePO server with the same MAC address each time, everytime you log in as different OS the agent would update the managed instance with the new OS details (you might end up with 6 unmanaged duplicates but those could be deleted).

Note: This is my interpritation, best wait for a McAfee employee to confirm.
