Licensing: Understanding v1 vs. v2 licenses for PolicyPak Products

If you got your license before June of 2013, that’s likely a v1 license.

If you got your license after June of 2014, that’s likely a v2 license.

Here’s what a v1 license looks like: http://screencast.com/t/pgi02uK7uco
Here’s what a v2 license looks like: http://screencast.com/t/X6ollxNBz

New licensing ramifications:

o CSE Builds 609 and earlier can only process “old v1” license GPO.
o CSE Build 701 and later will process “old” licenses until May 20, 2015.
o CSE Build 701 and later will process “new v2” licenses.

This means that you don’t HAVE to upgrade your CSEs on all machines until May 20, 2015

–or- until your renewal approaches.

If you have a special circumstance, or need an “old” license to keep your build 609 and earlier running for longer than May 20, 2015 we can accommodate you.

Contact your Customer Success Manager who will cut you updated keys which will match the original renewal date.

You may wish to upgrade from v1 to v2 licenses sooner than your normal renewal date, because PolicyPak Group Policy Compliance reporter provides free reporting on PolicyPak Application Manager items.

But, to be clear, that requires:

-Updated v2 license in place.

And

-CSE 712 and later (preferred) on all client machines.
