Template:How do I activate a license

From SEPsesam
Jump to: navigation, search

The procedure for activating a license is version specific. From SEP sesam v. 4.4.2 onwards, licenses are imported using the GUI. For versions lower than 4.4.2, the server license is copied into a directory as described below.

Note that SEP sesam Exchange Recovery Pro and SEP sesam SharePoint Recovery Pro extensions require specific installation steps:

The procedure for activating special licenses, such as SEP sesam Exchange Recovery Pro or SEP sesam SharePoint Recovery Pro, is as follows.

  1. Go to Start -> All Programs -> SEP sesam Exchange Recovery Pro or Start -> All Programs -> SEP sesam SharePoint Recovery Pro and open the extension. A License file not installed message appears.
  2. Click the License info button and import the license.ini file.

Both SEP sesam Exchange Recovery Pro and SEP sesam SharePoint Recovery Pro extensions require specific installation and configuration. For details on these procedures, see SEP sesam Exchange Recovery Pro and SEP sesam SharePoint Recovery Pro.

SEP sesam v. 4.4.2 and higher

Your license will be sent to you by e-mail. After receiving your license, proceed as follows:

  1. Open SEP sesam and select Help from the menu bar.
  2. Click License info, then click Import new license. A new window opens prompting you to paste a valid license file.
  3. Copy sm_lic.ini and paste it from the clipboard or use the file manager to browse and select the required license as a .ini or .zip file.
  4. Click Apply to enable the license.

Tip: License info also allows you to check the expiration date and to upgrade your license. All licensed components currently in use are displayed.

If the program displays any errors (for instance, in the hostname or IP address), email the SEP sesam License info to sales@sep.de by clicking the Send as mail button. Clicking Send as mail opens an email with the license information loaded. Address the message to sales@sep.de and send it.

SEP sesam versions lower than 4.4.2

Your license will be sent to you by e-mail. After receiving your license, proceed as follows:

  1. Unzip the license file.
  2. Copy it to the directory: <SESAM_ROOT>/var/ini.
  3. To apply the new license file, open the SEP sesam GUI and from the menu bar select Help -> License info, then restart the GUI.
    Alternatively, you can set the SEP sesam profile as described in What happens when I set a profile? and issue the following command:
    sm_info c

If the program displays any errors (for instance, in the hostname or IP address), email the SEP sesam License info to sales@sep.de.

From the SEP sesam version 4.0, you can send the license information directly from the SEP sesam GUI.
