On this page

Review the following license considerations:

  • The following licenses are currently not enforced:

    • All End Point User licenses

    • Deduplication Active Store Capacity

    • Mailbox Archive Solution

    • Virtual Machines

      If you exceed the license usage, CommCell operations are not affected.

  • If you apply the Commvault Complete OI/VOI, CPU Sockets on Hypervisor Hosts, or Protected Virtual Machines license on a CommCell environment where capacity license keys are also applied, then Virtual Server Agent jobs do not count toward capacity. This results in decreased capacity usage.
