In the short term, and if you're only a few over the licence limit, you should be fine. ePO does not strictly enforce the licence limit - instead a more gentle approach is taken
Your machines will not change to unmanaged.
Thank you, Joe! This certainly helps... But what is "short term" and "a few"? I hope it's all relative... because I probably should have said we are potentially up to "a few thousand" licenses short. But we have no way to see under our current ePO 4.0 server if we are out of compliance. We will certainly purchase more when we find out, but we don't want to find out the "hard way" with ePO 4.6... But more importantly, is this documented anywhere? I would like to have something to send/ point to the people who tasked me with finding this out. I expect quite a few requests for clarification...

Unfortunately I don't know for certain - this is up to the licensing folks. Rest assured though that it's not going to suddenly stop working or make your machines unmanaged: I would imagine that the most alarming thing that would happen would be a polite phone call from the licensing team
My suggestion would be to get in touch with your sales contact - they should be able to tell you exactly what you're licensed for, and you can then plan accordingly.
Well thanks again, Joe. We will contact our sales rep.
I think McAfee should be limit system to be managed base on Grant Number. Some customers buy 1000 but still can use for 2000.
