The Horizon Mirage Management server requires a license. The license file enforces the number of CVDs that you can run on your system and the duration of the license agreement.

Individual Horizon Mirage servers do not need licenses.

Software licenses are separate from the server installation package.

You can view the license details at any time. See Add and View Licenses.

When the license expiration date is reached, all management actions are disabled but the administrator can still view the system status and track operation status. Mirage endpoint-related functions, including backup, restore, and image management operations continue, so that clients can still upload changes to the CVD on the server.

When a license expires, or when the system is installed, a dialog box appears when you open the Management console, where you can type the license key. An audit event is created.

When you need a new license, contact VMware.
