3.2. Virtual Servers

Applies to:
Palisade network software 6.x/7.x

Does not apply to: Palisade Custom Runtime licenses, which are designed not to activate on virtual servers.

Are virtual servers supported?

Yes. (Cloning is not supported.) You should find that an activatable or certificate license works just fine. As always, if you have any doubts, Palisade Technical Support will be happy to create a test license for you on request. Or you could just use a certificate license and avoid the whole issue, even though a problem is unlikely. See Get License Certificate to obtain a certificate license.

Warning! Just as with a physical server, if your license is the activatable type, you must not delete the virtual server or reformat it without first deactivating your Palisade network license. Doing that would permanently destroy the license. If you reimage your server periodically, get a certificate license from Palisade.

Caution! If you take a snapshot, and later revert to that snapshot, an activatable license may break, and users won't be able to run. To fix it, see Repairing a Broken Network License. If you plan to continue to use your virtual server in that way, request a certificate license to replace your activatable license.

Certificate licenses are not available for Enterprise Networks. Therefore, if you have any reason to suspect a virtual server might not work, please consider a physical server for your Enterprise Network. If that is not convenient, please work with Palisade Technical Support to make certain that a test license works on your virtual server.
