Central User Licensing is an optional feature that allows a CMS to share a pool of user licenses among managed appliances. Customers with appliances that are globally distributed can use their licenses more efficiently with central user licenses where user demands peaks in one geographic area while it falls in a different geographic area due to off-work/night hours. Appliances that are in a datacenter can share licenses instead of having individual licenses for each appliance. When new or replacement appliances (physical or virtual) are added under CMS management, they get to share the pool of central user licenses.
Central user licensing must be enabled to use Global High Availability.
If CMS is used to manage appliances that have their own license, the administrator is responsible for ensuring that licenses across all managed appliances have the same features. CMS cannot manage configurations on appliances with a heterogeneous set of licensed features.
