VDI Agent Licenses

The ESM Console supports dedicated licenses for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments and displays the license capacity on the dashboard.
VDI environments can be complex and offer variations based on vendor options and implementation methods. Choose the license that is suitable for your environment:
License Type
Description
Revoke Conditions
Workstation/Server License
Use a standard workstation/server license if your VDI sessions must remain active regardless of the user connectivity (login) status. In this deployment, every VDI session receives a standard workstation/server license that persists after the user logs off thus ensuring that Traps protection is uninterrupted after the user logs off.
After the ESM detaches the license, it returns it to the pool of licenses for use by another workstation or server.
The ESM automatically revokes the license only if Traps was uninstalled.
To revoke the license on-demand you can:
VDI License (PAN-TRAPS-V)
Use a VDI License for on-demand license distribution. In this deployment, the ESM uses a floating license model to issue the license when a user logs in to a VDI and automatically revoke the license after the session ends.
After the ESM detaches the license, it returns it to the VDI pool of licenses for use by another active session.
The ESM automatically revokes the license when any of the following occur:
  • The user logs off.
  • The agent hasn’t responded to two consecutive heartbeat communication messages.
  • The agent was uninstalled.
To revoke the license on-demand you can:
The license freeing mechanism operates independently from persistent and non persistent modes.
