Licenses will be provided by Basis Technologies typically prior to the installation. They are a file, and you should store somewhere safe, accessible and secure.
A reissue of a new ActiveDiscover license key to our customers is part of the annual renewals process.
If you already have Diffuser and ActiveControl licences then you do not need to reapply them. Your Basis Technologies contact will advise on your licencing procedure for ActiveDiscover only, following the steps below.
On first use of ActiveDiscover you will need to enter a license before the tool will operate. The screen will look like this:
Checking and Updating the ActiveDiscover License
After ActiveDiscover is configured, the license key can be Viewed and a new key uploaded by ActiveDiscover Administrators via the button on the Settings screen:
In the pop-up screen which is seen, you can see the existing Expiry Date and the number of Licensed Landscapes
Clicking on “Upload new license file” will bring up a standard file access window from where you can select the license file to be uploaded.
If you have an incorrect or invalid file, you will see an upload error:
Checking and Updating the Diffuser License
You will also need to manually add a Diffuser License for the Central and Source system.
Use transaction: /n/btr/license
Selecting the Install Key File and then clicking Execute will bring up a File Selection screen where you can locate the License.
For Central it will be a License marked as “PX”
For Source it will be a license marked as “TE01”
