Licensing on Virtual Servers & Workstations
(Intergraph Geospatial/ERDAS Products)
(12-20-2010: This policy pertains to ERDAS 2011 and all earlier versions.) ERDAS licensing does not support system IDs from virtual machines. ERDAS licensing is based upon unique system identifiers, and the virtual network adapters are not sufficiently unique. Intergraph Geospatial software may be installed onto a virtual machine, but it must use a floating license from an actual (non-virtual) license server. Running an ERDAS license server on a virtual machine is not supported.
