Types of SRC Licenses

You must obtain a license for the SRC software from the Juniper Networks License Management System. Juniper Networks provides server licenses for the SRC software.

The server license limits the number of concurrent active SAE service sessions. The server license is managed by the SRC license server, which reads the license, leases a portion of the license on demand to each SAE client, monitors the consumption of the license, and raises alarms when necessary. For server licenses, the SAE client does not involve the directory for license management. Use the server license for a production implementation of the SRC software.

The server license replaces the production license used in earlier releases of the SRC software. A production license limited the capacity of the entire network under SAE management and optionally specified the maximum number of SAE services that were concurrently available to be activated by subscribers, an expiration date, or both.

Note: The license server must be the same version as the SAE. For example, if you are using the license server and upgrade the SAE version, you must upgrade the license server to the same version.

A pilot license for 100 subscribers is installed on the system by default. If you have not imported a server license, the SRC software uses the pilot license.

If you have both a server license and a pilot license, the SRC software enforces the server license.
