    When reading the Management Center installation guide it mentions the server requirements for small, large and enterprise installations. I assume this is referring to the number of devices being managed but there is no indication of the limitation of each installation. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Also, are different licenses required for each of these levels?

    The customer currently have around 90 nodes consisting of Summit switches some of which are stacks of 2 or more members. Would this be covered by the Small deployment?

    They currently use Netsight and I believe this runs on a Windows Server.

    Hi Paul,

    I guess to get better answer on this part we have to check with Deployment team,

    Thanks,

    Just to add to this regarding licensing.

    Licenses also comes with a managed device count, so if you have 100 managed devices you could install and configure for "Enterprise" level and still have an NMS-100 type license.

    So licensing is independent from server size.

    Thanks

    So the level is just a guidance for number of devices likely to managed and the device count licensing dictates the number of devices?

    Yep,

    Licensing will dictate number of devices and what feature sets are unlocked. (NMS-BASE, NMS, NMS-ADV)

    Thanks

    Hello Paul,

    There is one script which will you help to understand NMS license.

    NetSight license - What options do I have for NetSight?
