CCS categorizes the features that require mandatory licenses during installation and the features that can be licensed in the post-installation of the product.
CCS contains a core license that is required for installing the CCS Application Server components including the Directory Service. The core license is a mandatory license and must be provided during the installation of CCS.
The CCS Maintenance license is required to install the default CCS Content during CCS installation. For optional CCS features you can provide a license though the CCS Console later.
Base license is required to activate a product feature. For example, activating Policy Manager to use CCS for policy compliance.
Licenses for CCS Policy Manager and CCS Risk Manager are not metered per user. Hence total license count for these features is displayed as Unlimited.
The features are licensed with the Symantec Enterprise License Service (ELS), which constitute the .slf files. The licenses can be provided either through the Installation Wizard during installation of the product or in the post-installation of the product. Once the licenses are provided to CCS, the licenses are stored at the location %programdata%\Symantec Shared\Licenses.
For fresh installation, new CCS 11.1 licenses are provided.
If you are upgrading from CCS 11.0 you can continue using the existing 11.0 licenses till they are valid. Once the CCS 11.0 licences expire, new CCS 11.1 licenses will be provided.
Contact Symantec Technical Support for assistance on renewal or procurement of licenses.
