WebConfig - Pro Cloud Server Licenses

The Pro Cloud Server Licenses screen can be accessed from the WebConfig Home page, either by using the 'Add Link' icon found in the 'Server Summary' section, or by clicking on the Server Settings button and then on the Manage PCS Licenses button.

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 this example the current Token license is valid from February 3rd, 2019 to February 4th, 2020 and has 5 tokens.

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

License Procedure

As of Pro Cloud Server version 4.0.30 Pro Cloud Server licenses are linked to the host machine, which is an enforcement of what is 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 that the Team edition now allows seven Pro-enabled models, which is an increase of two compared to earlier versions.

To add a License, the basic procedure is:
