Welcome to the Volume License Agreement Community Group



The purpose of this community is to assist Volume License Agreement (VLA) Administrators efficiently deploy NI software throughout their sites. Some example topics are silently installing NI software, using Microsoft SMS/SCCM to deploy NI software silently and deploying software that automatically looks to NI Volume License Manager for licenses.


Small groups, sites, or organizations with five or more licenses of an application software package can take advantage of VLP. Program members enjoy reduced total cost of ownership and streamlined asset management while still retaining all of the benefits of the NI Standard Service Program (SSP).
