Activating application licenses

A license key is a value that enables you to activate a license. Licensing requirements vary, depending on which version of BMC Remedy AR System you use. Depending on the components that you use, you might need several licenses to activate an application. You must activate the licenses before installing the applications. You must know the host ID of the system running the applications when you request a license key.

To add licenses to BMC Remedy AR System 7.5.00 patch 003 or later, you can enter them into a form or import them from a file. Licenses are active as soon as they are added to the server.

Note

You cannot change the license type of a user to Fixed more than three times in one week.

If you have questions about licensing requirements, contact Customer Support.

To add licenses to BMC applications

  2. Open the AR System Administration Console by clicking Applications > AR System Administration > AR System Administration Console.
  3. In the AR System Administration Console, click System > General > Add or Remove Licenses.

    1. Click Add New.
    2. In License Type, select AR Server.

      Note

      You can add only one entry for each license type except for server licenses (multiple server licenses are distinguished from each other by license keys). To increase or decrease the number of licenses available for other license types, modify the entry.

    3. Enter 1 for Number of Licenses.
      0 indicates that the license is inactive.
