Node Locked Vs. Floating Licenses.

Post by qamanager » Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:55 pm

Please explain the difference. I believe Locked would have limited licenses and Floating not limited, but need clarification. Thanks.

Welcome over from SQAForums!

As I posted there:
Node locked is a license that is locked to a single computer.
Floating is a license that lives on a license server. Any computer can check out the license and use it, then check it back in when done and allow another computer to use it. Only one computer can use a license at a time.

Thanks for the reply in both places. I am still in the look over phase and will be doing the 30 day trial, but it seems like a great tool!
