WebConfig - Pro Cloud Server Licenses

The Pro Cloud Server Licenses screen can be accessed from the WebConfig Home page, either by using the Configure License icon found in the Server Summary Section, or by selecting Server Settings, then Manage PCS Licenses.

This screen allows you to quickly and easily see what Pro Cloud Server licenses have been defined, and the complete details of each license.

In the above example the current Token license is valid between February 4th, 2019 to February 4th, 2020 and has 20 tokens.

If there is any kind of problem with the license the 'Valid' column will show an alert icon, check the tooltip of the icon for more information. Details regarding the issue will also be written to the current log file.

License Procedure

As of Pro Cloud Server version 4.0.30 the licensing procedure has been enhanced. Pro Cloud Server licenses are now linked to the host machine, which is an enforcement of what was stated in the license agreement.

Along with the change to Licensing procedures Pro Cloud Server 4.0.30 introduced the 'Token' Edition, which provides a more flexible upgrade path by making use of tokens that can be purchased separately at any time to enable only the extra functionality your environment requires.

For the premium editions (Team and Enterprise) the enabled functionality remains unchanged except for the Team edition now allows 7 Pro enabled models which has been increased by 2 compared to earlier versions.

To add a License, the basic procedure to follow is:
