This chapter describes licensing.

License Types

The following license types are available:

  • InstantOn license provides full access to all features for 90 days.
  • Permanent license is node-locked (restricted to a range of IP addresses).

License Management

Follow these steps to manage the license:

  1. Rename the license file to LicFile.txt.
  2. Copy and paste LicFile.txt to the SMSSMEX installation path, such as C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\SMSSMEX.

    Note The Instance On license is installed during SMSSMEX installation. However, considering the Windows 2012 Security Right Control feature, the Instance On license may not be successfully installed during installation. In this case, you must manually run the InstantOn.bat batch script in the bin folder to add the Instance On license to SMSSMEX or to replace the license file with the existing license data.
