Demo license to permanent license

Hello All, again.

Is there documentation on how to go from demo to permanent?

I have my permanent license keys, files. I just feel that I should have support on the phone when I do this.

Just in case every thing doesnot come back online.

Also...  should I delete the other package files and there folders first?

Like I'm thinking that I should clean up the system and only have what we really use, then apply the license.

Any doc to follow would be great.

Thanks

Mike.

Demo license to permanent license

It is pretty straight forward in 5.3.1

using the Activities... Register License...then Click Load License Button to load the license file supplied to you

You should have been given a file (5.3.1 is file based, 6.x is a code)

After loading a license file, information about your license should be displayed in the dialog / grid

Make sure it matches what you own / using for that environment

Key items

Master License for Machine <-- make sure it matches

Expiration:       No expiration or some date if that is expected

Clients:            # of clients you expect to connect at one time

Options  <-- Make sure you have all the options you should like Fault Tolerance, Transporter, etc

If you have a demo key that is valid for this week you could switch back if you ran into problems.

Adapters may have different procedures I believe there are adapter guides for each adapter (we only use the basics)

I think generically you just need to stop drop start the master services

Based on your other questions, you're running 5.3 which manages licenses a bit differently than 6.X. 

I'd open a case with support.
