89600 VSA Software installation within a Virtual Environment

Question asked by petermoreton on Aug 10, 2015
Hi,

We are investigating the virtualisation of the our Keysight support environments (these are presently physical) and have tested and install of "Keysight 89600 VSA 19.5" under the VMware ESX 5.5 virtualisation layer, and find that although a Trial License can be installed into the License Manager, the VSA software appears to ignore this, and runs in Demo mode only.

Could somebody please advise:

a) Is this expected behaviour?

b) Are there any plans to embrace virtualisation of Keysight application software

c) Do any workarounds exist to get the Keysight License Manager working under a virtual world?

Thanks,

Peter
