This client management license (ML) allows one nonserver device to be managed by Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (previously known as System Center Configuration Manager) and System Center Virtual Machine Manager. If a device has multiple operating system environments (OSEs), a separate ML is required for each OSE managed by Configuration Manager.
Benefits for Organizations
If you have a dedicated IT department and staff with datacenter administration experience, your organization can use Configuration Manager and Virtual Machine Manager to manage all client desktops, thin clients, mobile devices, and virtual desktops from a unified interface.
- Configuration Manager: provides software deployment, distribution, update management, and configuration monitoring throughout an IT infrastructure
- Virtual Machine Manager: enables administration and management of Microsoft and VMware virtual machine guests and virtual machine hosts
- Co-management with Microsoft Intune: provides limited access to the cloud-based Microsoft Intune service to concurrently manage Windows 10 devices with both Configuration Manager and Intune
Other types of System Center licenses are also available. For more information, see TechSoup Asia's Guide to System Center Products and Licensing.
The right to run System Center management server software is included with the MLs. If you request this product, you can obtain management server software for all of the System Center components listed above. The software includes a runtime version of SQL Server Technology (SQL Server Standard Edition) to support System Center. No additional licenses are needed for management servers or SQL Server technology.
CALs, ECLs, and management licenses (MLs) offered through TechSoup Asia are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licenses can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.
Under the Software Assurance program, you have the right to install any new release of products covered in the agreement during the term of your coverage.
