Re: deploy ISE on a VMware Virtual Machine

I would recommend you engage your Cisco partner/reseller to help you scope this.  The licensing will have to be purchased through one anyways. 


You will require base licenses for any authentication, plus licensing if you authenticate using attributes gathered from profiling probes, and apex licensing if you want posture.

If you want TACACS device admin licensing then that is licensed on a per node basis, one TACACS node license per node you enable it on.  

If you want VM ISE nodes, you will need a VM node license per node that gets deployed, these come in three sizes based on the required scale.  

This is all covered in the ISE ordering/licensing guide with some helpful examples as well.

While running in evaluation mode it is not necessary to purchase any license.

No purchased Base, Plus, Apex, Device Administration or VM licenses are needed - all features will work without restriction during the 90-day evaluation period.

There are many, many use cases.
