Finding the Host ID

To obtain a license policy file, you need to know the host ID of the machine on which you want to install the licenses. For floating licenses this is a license server with Silk Meter installed. For node-locked licenses this is typically the controller machine.

  1. On the machine, open a command prompt and enter the command ipconfig/all. The network adapters and additional information is listed.
  2. Note the host ID, which is the MAC Address or Physical Address of your LAN card, for example 00-BF-00-1C-D3-3D.
    Tip: Depending on your system setup, including virtual machines and VPN connections, your computer might have several network adapters with different MAC addresses. Be sure to note the host ID of your physical LAN card.
