Configuring Cloud-Served Network Licenses

A cloud-served network license enables a Sentinel RMS License Manager to run concurrent licenses from a network location

Before you begin:

  • You must have an internet connection to activate the licenses.
  • You must have the Entitlement ID for your license.

Note: Cloud-served licenses are only supported on some Linux platforms (RedHat, SUSE, and Debian).

Configure your License during RMS Installation

  1. If you have not already done so, download the RMS installation scripts for Windows or Unix from the Uniface Downloads site.
  2. Follow the installation steps for your platform. For more information, see Installing the Sentinel RMS License Manager on Windows or Installing the Sentinel RMS License Manager on Unix and Linux.
  3. When prompted during installation, enter your Entitlement ID. You also have the option to configure a proxy server.
  4. In your application's assignment files, set $LICENSE_OPTIONS to include the hostname for your RMS:

Configure your License Manually

If you choose to manually configure your license using the installation option Install RMS and I will configure the license later, activate your license as follows:

  1. Go to the folder where your Sentinel RMS License Manager is installed and open the ulic folder. This is where you will find the Uniface License Management command line utility (ulic), which enables you to activate and download your Sentinel license in batch mode.
  2. Start your command prompt from this folder. If the folder is protected, run the command prompt as administrator.
  3. Activate your Entitlement ID using the location of ulic and the /act command. For example, to activate the Entitlement ID 123456abcd on Windows, use:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\ulic\bin\ulic.exe" /bat /act=123456abcd

    To activate more than one Entitlement ID, run the /act command for each Entitlement ID that needs to be activated.

    For more information on the ulic commands, see Uniface License Management Utility (ulic).

  4. Check the result in the SentinelCloudPlugin folder where your RMS is installed. If the activation is successful, the activation.txt file is created.
  5. Restart your RMS License Manager and Sentinel Cloud Plug-in services.
