Multiple licenses, violation warnings and search lockout.

Engager

We are planning to split up our environments into different licenses.

My questions are:

  1. should we have a violation on an individual license does that add to a global or individual (to the license) violation total.

  2. What will be the effect should we have 5 violations (within the rolling window) on a single license. Search blackout on that license or globally.

The use case I really want to avoid is e.g. 5 violations from different licenses causing a global search blackout or 5 violations on a lower priority license (from our perspective, e.g. dev environment) causing a global search blackout.

It all depends on how you stack the licenses. If you have a single license master with all the licenses installed, and carved up, a global blackout would be caused by 5 violations. If you have multiple license masters, then you would have individual license blackouts. You can also get a reset license rather quickly if you need it. I would also suggest a "Dev license" (10GB) for use in your Dev Environment. That way you don't have to worry about dev impacting prod.

Great advice, thank you. I will be standing up some new license masters very shortly.
