Hi Team,


Today for one of our customer we have installed (MM, AP,PEF,RFP) license in mynode.

The customer setup is L3 redundancy between MMs.

But we have to use global centralized licensing on this setup.

1.So kindly let me know whether the license installation on mynode cause any issues or it will be fine.

2.Do I need to install it again on MM node? If yes how to add the same license on MM node.
