NNMi Free licensing and the Quick Start Configuration Wizard

By choosing the NNMi Free “Quick Start Wizard” during installation the user can choose between a 60-day evaluation license for NNMi Advanced and a perpetual license for NNMi Free.

Note that whichever option is chosen initially, the user can swap back and forth between the two license types until the NNMi Advanced evaluation period has been reached or exceeded. There are benefits to initially utilizing the 60-day NNMi Advanced evaluation license in that the user can exercise the “Advanced” features of NNMi. Many of these features are noted in the “NNMi version comparison” chart above. The NNMi Advanced evaluation license also permits the management of up to 250 nodes providing increased flexibility in terms of bringing a wider array of nodes under management.

When the NNMi Advanced evaluation version has reached its 60 day expiration period (or at any time after initial installation) the user may purchase a permanent license or convert the evaluation license to a 25 node perpetual license for NNMi Free. To modify the license for NNMi the user must rerun the NNMi Quick Start Wizard (Pease revert back to the installation manual for more details). To do this, you will need to point your browser to the system and port upon which NNMi Free was first installed. The URL would resemble (http://host:port/quickstart).
