licence question regarding perpetual and agents

Post by ortoscale »


The customer has this standard perpetual license with 6 sockets covered and used.
At the end of license screen there is

Instances 6(0 used)

what does that mean? customer is also eligible to use 6 agents?

Hi Matjaž

Socket licenses are gifted with complimentary instances.
For 1 Socket you get 1 free instance (max 6 instances per socket license).
You may use them for other workload like physical Agent Backups or File Share Backup Jobs.

You can read more about it in our licensing policy:
1.4. Gifted (Built-in) Product License
