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