License Service allows for automatic updates of Keys. This is useful when it comes time to renew or if keys need to be reconfigured. Only a Service Restart is required to apply any key changes.
Note: License Service is only available in Software versions 2013.10.25.1 or later and requires a special Key configuration. If you’d like to switch to licensed service, please email email@example.com, and we’ll get you started.
Note2: If you choose to use the license service, all instances must use it. i.e., one instance cant use a CPU or WINDOWS id Key while others use the License Service.
Note3: Your server will need inbound and outbound connections allowed to the following web services.
The process to Enable License Service…
1) Stop Services on Instance you’d like to use with License Services.
2) Edit Server Manager
3) “check” Use License Service
4) Set Ping and Timeout Intervals (Timeout Interval must always be greater than Ping Interval)
5) Save and Close
6) Associate License Serial Code to Instance
7) Restart Services
