Also note what is NOT required to be licensed:

  1. Admin Stations…
    a. You don’t need a license for anywhere the GPMC is running / editing / creating GPOS.
    b. You don’t need a license for anywhere the PolicyPak Group Policy Compliance Reporter Admin Station (Client) is running.
  2. Again: You DON’T need a license for endpoints to use GP Compliance Reporter to REPORT on PolicyPak stuff. This is automatically licensed. (Remember: You DO need a PP Compliance Reporter Endpoint license if you want to report on Microsoft Group Policy item types like Group Policy Security Settings.)
  3. PP Compliance Reporter SERVER is no longer licensed. Only PP Compliance Reporter ENDPOINTS are licensed.
  4. None of the PP “Support” tools like the PolicyPak Application Manager Design Studio, Powershell add-ins, or GPOTouch utility need to be licensed.
