Technical Information
License Manager dialog box
 

You use the License Manager dialog box to examine details about your licenses, enter new licenses, and remove licenses. For a selected license, the dialog box displays the version of the relevant application that the license applies to, the license's serial reference, the license's expiration date, and the number of days remaining on the license before it expires. You can enter license codes manually, drag-and-drop a license file, or add a license file from a disk.

You access the License Manager dialog box from the License Manager object in the details pane. You access the License Manager object by double-clicking the RMS Configuration container in the console tree.

Like other configuration data, the license data is saved on the currently selected Information Server. Licenses that are stored on one Information Server cannot be accessed by another Information Server. However, you can use the Information Server Migration Wizard to migrate licenses from one Information Server to another.

License options items

bv-Control for Windows requires the following types of licenses:

    • Workstation
    • Server
    • User

Note: Separate Workstation licenses do not exist on the control side. Compliance Manager license contains the licenses for Workstations. For example, Beta license - Symantec Control Compliance Suite 8.5 for Windows Managed User, 90 day Evaluation_6207907 includes the workstation license.

When you initiate a query, the Query Engine attempts to gather information from all servers and workstations. If you want to collect information from workstations only, and you do not have any or all of your servers and workstations licensed, the RMS Console returns an error message stating that are not enough licenses to provide complete data. To avoid this error, bv-Control for Windows lets you choose to skip workstations or servers when running queries.
