What are the items to be licensed ?

In Cloud-based environments, license cost is calculated based on the number of user mailboxes in the hosted organization. In On-Premises environments, Exchange Servers must be licensed based on the data sources they generate, on the type of reports you plan to produce, and on the mailbox or public folders you plan to report on.

Licensing is based on the number of user mailboxes in the hosted organization.
 
On-Premises environments
 
Exchange 2016
The only remaining server role being the Mailbox role, you must license all servers of a DAG.
 
Exchange 2013
To produce
  • Traffic reports, you must license Mailbox servers in order to import the message tracking files they generate. In clustered environments, only active nodes need to be licensed.
  • OWA and Active Sync reports, you must license CAS servers. The IIS log files they generate must be imported into the database.
  • Storage size reports or reports on mailbox/public folder content, you must license Mailbox servers. Mailboxes will be dynamically scanned. In a DAG (Database Availability Group), all servers that host active databases must be licensed.

Exchange 2007/2010
To produce
  • Traffic reports, you must license Hub Transport servers in order to import the message tracking files they generate. In clustered environments, only active nodes need to be licensed.
  • OWA and Active Sync reports, you must license CAS servers.The IIS log files they generate must be imported into the database.
  • Storage size reports or reports on mailbox/public folder content, you must license Mailbox servers. Mailboxes and public folders will be dynamically scanned. In a DAG (Database Availability Group), all servers that host active databases must be licensed.

Exchange 2003
To produce
  • Traffic reports, you must license Back-End servers in order to import the message tracking files they generate.
  • OWA and Active Sync reports, you must license Front-End servers. The IIS log files they generate must be imported into the database.
  • Storage size reports or reports on mailbox/public folder content, you must license Back-End servers. Mailboxes and public folders be dynamically scanned.
For more information on the native Exchange data sources used by Promodag Reports, see How does it work? and On-premises environments: schematic system layout.For the complete list of available report templates, see List of report templates.
 
Notes: Multi-role servers, for example Hub Transport/CAS, must only be counted once. To produce connector flow reports, you must license Mailbox servers in Exchange 2013 environments, Edge Transport servers in Exchange 2007/2010, and Front-End servers in Exchange 2003. They generate specific message tracking files that can be imported into the database. Other server roles or Non-Exchange servers are NOT taken into account by PROMODAG Reports.
