Import license files

Prerequisite: To import a license file into the SafeGuard Enterprise Database, a security officer needs the right "Import license file".

  1. In the SafeGuard Management Center, click Users and Computers.
  2. In the navigation window on the left-hand side, click the root node, the domain or the OU.
  3. In the action area, switch to the Licenses tab.
  4. Click the Import license file... button.

    A window opens where you can select the license file.

  5. Select the license file you want to import, and click Open.

    The Apply license? dialog is displayed showing the license file contents.

  6. Click Apply license.

The license file is imported into the SafeGuard Enterprise Database.

After you have imported the license file, the module licenses purchased are marked with the license type regular. Any modules which no licenses were purchased for and which the evaluation license (default license file) or individual demo licenses are used for will be marked with the license type demo.

Note: Whenever a new license file is imported, only those modules that are included in that license file are affected. All other module license information is retained as it was retrieved from the database. This import functionality simplifies the evaluation of additional modules after purchase.
