License x Console [on user behalf]

Good afternoon,

I did not find anything about it so I opened this topic.

Can you tell me how many consoles I can install with the licenses?
For example if I buy 50 licenses of any Endpoint version, how many consoles (SOA or EA) can I use, have any limits?
I ask this because another AV company limits 3 consoles, there is a bit different since it is not license file, but activation key.
 
Thank you in advance.

Hi Lisandro,

Never use the console MySelf but if you look at the manual, link provided in this post : https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=124140.0
You will find yourself the answer in the Enterprise Administration Console User Manual

The SQL Data base, the Avast Client and the console are linked to the EAS.

So, I beleive you can have as many console you want....

It's just like opening a website

Just tell us want you find, I'm curious too.

Best deployment practice is ONE Console. If you need to have multiple sites and want a console local there for the update caching (most common reason) then simply install a 2nd level mirror at each site. And specify that as the update mirror in the group's settings.

While I believe you could use the same license to install multiple consoles, making sure you are in compliance with your license would be very hard.
