Authorizing your product when you don't have an Internet connection

Note: This topic only applies if you have an authorization code. Authorization codes are only available with Sentinel RMS licensing.

This method of authorization is required if the machine you want to license does not have an Internet connection or if normal (automatic) authorization fails.

In order to authorize your product you must have the following:
  • Access to a computer which is connected to the Internet.
  • Your authorization code (a 16-character alphanumeric string).
  • The machine ID. To get this, start the Micro Focus License Administration tool and select the Get Machine Id option by entering 6. Make a note of the "Old machine ID".

If you have previously received the licenses and put them in a text file, skip to step 6.

  1. Open the Micro Focus license activation web page in a browser.
  2. Enter your authorization code and old machine ID and, optionally, your email address in the Email Address field.
  3. Click Generate.
  4. Copy the licenses strings from the web page or the email you receive into a file.
  5. Put the license file onto your target machine.
  6. Start the Micro Focus License Administration tool and select the Manual License Installation option by entering 4.
  7. Enter the name and location of the license file.
