    On the Domino Server, on the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run.
    In the Open box, type the following text:

    64 Bit Operating System 
    Default Location: C:\Program Files\Symantec\SMSDOM\PAS\bin

  3. Type the following command to register the license file information to the configuration file: 
    - If Direct Internet Access Available
    register.exe -c <config file> -l <license file> 

    - If Proxy Server Required for Internet Access
    register.exe -c <config file> -l <license file> -p <proxyserver:proxyport> -a <proxyuser:proxypassword> -v 

    Where the following is true:
