Authentication service enforcement

Any time you open the Access Manager console, a background process determines the availability of licenses.

As you increase the number of licenses in use, license enforcement is progressive. If the number of computers is less than 90% of the number of licenses you have purchased, there’s no affect on any auditing features. If the number of computers is more than 90% of the licenses purchased, enforcement depends on the number of licenses in use:

  • 90-100% of the licensing limit displays a warning message that you are close to over‑deployment, but you can continue to use all authentication and privilege elevation features.
  • 100-120% of the licensing limit displays a warning message that you must acknowledge by clicking OK when you open the console, after which you can resume using the console.
  • Over 120% of the licensing limit displays a warning message for 60 seconds when you open the console. If you see the 60 second warning message, use the License dialog box to add license keys to continue using features.

You can contact Centrify to purchase additional licenses or remove some computers to bring the number of licenses used into compliance.
