To run licensed GlobalProtect, will it require an upgrade to the GlobalProtect Client?

We've been running GlobalProtect without using advanced features, thus no license is required. Now we've decided to enable HIP which requires installing a license. Will that require a change to the GlobalProtect Client running on all the Windows user machines?

@skuo2020,

Nope. When you license GlobalProtect you don't have to make any changes to the actual agent installed on the endpoints; they will simply pull down the new configuration the next time they connect and activate the licensed capabilities.

No, the agent remains identical, you just enable a new feature
