5.5 Possible License State Changes

The transition of a product to a new licence state depends on the current license state of the product and the license state of the product prior to the current license state. Accordingly, you can choose to evaluate, activate, or deactivate a product.

For example:

NOTE:If you change the license state on a ZENworks Server, it might take up to 30 minutes for the license state change to be reflected on the managed device. To enable the license state change to be immediately reflected on the managed device, restart the zenserver services on the ZENworks Server.
