The following options outline how to add a license to ServiceControl.
ServiceControl Management has a license user interface which will import the designated license file into the registry. The license file is added to the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive so it is available to all instances of ServiceControl regardless of the service account used.
To import a license using PowerShell:
- Start the ServiceControl PowerShell Management Console from the start menu
- Execute the following cmdlet with the path to the license file.
In Versions 1.17 and below, a license can be applied to an individual instance rather than using a license installed in the registry. To do this, copy the
license.xml file to a
license directory under the installation path of the instance.
License information is read at service start up and cached. Once a new license is applied the ServiceControl instance must be restarted to detect the license change, until then the license status shown in ServicePulse is based on the cached state.
