Deploying System Center Config Mgr (current branch and LTSB 1606) ?

Hi Folks,

How does the SCCM is licensed for the server or the workstations?

because when I go to the MS Volume Licensing Service Center https://www.microsoft.com/Licensing/servicecenter/LicensingInfo/LicenseSummary/Summary.aspx

I can see it like the below:
Licensing
Does it means that I can deploy the Microsoft System Center Client Management Suite 2016 edition, Microsoft System Center 2016 Datacenter or just the System Center Config Mgr (current branch and LTSB 1606) ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

System Center is a perk of having Software Assurance.  It is no good without clients that connect to it, and these require a license.

David,

Thanks for the confirmation.
So based on the screenshot of my License Summary page above, I assume that I can deploy the SCCM server, but I'm confused about which one is the correct server or product to be installed on the Data Center ?

CMS (now defunct) consisted of  Service Manager,Operations Manager,Data Protection Manager, and Orchestrator

System Center 2016 Client Management Suite was the last version of Client Management Suite. Each component of Client Management Suite is now licensed as a separate product. Microsoft switched the licensing of the System Center Products from Suite to licensing all products on their own. So from now on you have to purchase Client Management Licenses for the specific product you want to use. This will make licensing more flexible but also a bit more complicated. Who actually owns a Client Management Suite with SA, should know that for every purchased license you will receive a product CML for each specific product:

    For each Eligible License, Customer is granted one System Center 2016 [#PROUCT] management License, which will supersede and replace that Eligible License.

Microsoft System Center 2016 Datacenter  is the complete System Center suite

Great,

It seems that since the screenshot above is showing me that I'm eligible for System Center Config Mgr (current branch and LTSB 1606), I will just deploy that edition just to be safe.
