WTS Licenses Plug-in - Technical Reference

Introduction

The WTS Licenses plug-in provides a view of the current licenses issued by a Terminal Services Licensing Server. Multiple servers can be monitored by using multiple instances of this plug-in - one instance per view required. These views can then be shown inside a single Managed Entity or across multiple Managed Entities as required.
