IBM BigFix is licensed annually per operating system installation and by the type of operating system. In order to encourage units to apply power settings, most workstations are eligible for a centrally-funded license at least until June 20, 2017.

If a physical machine has multiple operating systems installed using virtualization technologies, each of the operating systems uses a separate license and is displayed in the BigFix console as a separate machine.

Workstation Licenses

All BigFix-supported workstation editions of Mac, Linux, and Windows are eligible for centrally-funded licensing for any location/unit except Hershey Medical School and Hospial and the Pennsylvania College of Technology (Williamsport).

Server Licenses

BigFix licensing for all server editions of Mac, Linux, Unix, and Windows is not centrally-funded.
