I am very excited to announce the extension of the Opalis use rights grant to cover client management scenarios!
We are granting a fully-licensed version of Opalis to customers who are licensed for the System Center Client Management Suite (CMS) or Enterprise CAL for client management scenarios. Customers with valid licenses of CMS or Enterprise CAL will be able to download a fully licensed version of Opalis from the Opalis download site.
The existing Opalis grant made available to SMSE/SMSD customers covered server management scenarios, but did not enable scenarios where Opalis was managing client devices. This additional grant provides our customers with full rights to leverage the power of the Opalis automation and integration capabilities against devices covered by either a CMS or Enterprise CAL license.
Further useful information and FAQs:
What rights are we granting?
How are we conveying Opalis client management use rights?
Which customers qualify for this grant of Opalis client management use rights?
When will Opalis client management use rights be made available?
How do customers get the Opalis client management use rights?
I will be posting examples of client scenarios over the coming weeks as we build to MMS in March. In the meantime, let’s get automating!
Adam Hall Sr. Technical Product Manager, Opalis
