    Licensing Move



      Are there some resources available on how McAfee Move is licensed?


      as an additional piece of information

      do I need to license the VDI Hypervisor with  McAfee Move AV for virtual servers as well as the virtual desktops product?


      (Licensed per Hypervisor as I understand)

      (as well as McAfee Move AV for Virtual Desktops Licensed per Node


      I take it a Node is a Virtual desktop in this instance?

          I believe the vshield licensing has changed with version 5 but with version 4 we had to buy licenses to be able to utilize the agentless move configuration.

            There are two different commercial offering with two different licensing modes:

            - MOVE for virtual desktops - licensed per virtual node (virtual machine)

            - MOVE for virtual servers - licensed per hypervisor (physical server)


            I'll give you some examples:

            - 1 Physical server, 50 virtual desktops : You'll need 50 MOVE for virtual desktop licenses

            - 1 Physical server, 50 virtual servers: You'll need 1 MOVE for virtual servers

            - 1 Physical server, 30 virtual desktops, 20 virtual servers: 30 MOVE for virtual desktop licenses, 1 for virtual servers
