Admin Fee: £1.00 + VAT

This client management license (ML) allows any number of nonserver operating system environments (OSEs) to be managed by System Center 2012 Configuration Manager and Virtual Machine Manager, as long as only one user has access to them. If more than one user has access to a certain OSE or set of OSEs, then an ML is necessary for each user.

Benefits for Organisations

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.

Licensed Components

•    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


Other types of System Center licenses are also available. For more information, see Guide to System Center Products and Licensing.
