Cisco CWMS Licenses

 Permanent Host License
 —An installed Host license purchased to allow a user to host meetings that is assigned to that user the first time that person hosts a meeting. A Host license can be manually assigned to a user by an administrator; a user does not have to wait to host a meeting to be assigned a license. If there is a user with a Grace license and a Permanent Host license becomes available, either by removal of a host or the purchase of additional Permanent Host licenses, the permanent license is assigned to the host with a Grace license. In version 2.5, a user never consumes more than one Permanent Host license and can host a maximum of two meetings at the same time. Also, a Permanent Host license is released for use by another host only when the user of that license is deactivated.

Grace Host License
—A temporary license consumed by a meeting host in a Permanent License environment where all of the permanent licenses have been consumed. A limited number of Grace Host Licenses are temporarily available for a system with Permanent Host Licenses (a system not in a trial period) if the number of installed licenses is briefly exceeded. Warnings about the excess licenses are displayed to the administrator. Temporary Grace Host licenses in this scenario are associated with a user for 180 days. When a Permanent Host license becomes available, the Permanent Host license is associated with the user and the Grace license is released. If after 180 days the user has not acquired a Permanent Host license, the user is no longer allowed to host meetings.

Demonstration License
—Temporary host licenses with varying valid durations provided by a vendor on a case-by-case basis. (They are primarily used for testing.) When these licenses expire, your system returns to its previous license status. A Demonstration Host license expires weather or not it is assigned to a user.

1. Permanent
2. Demo
3. Grace

Only the Permanent licenses can be assigned. Once a user is assigned a permanent license, it will require an available permanent license to reactivate that user profile. Users without any assigned license will be able to use the demo license. If a user is assigned a grace license and a permanent license becomes available, that permanent license becomes associated with a user assigned a grace license.
