Network licenses are necessary to run CLC Microbial Genomics Module analysis tasks on grid nodes. Network licenses are made available using a separate piece of software called the CLC License Server. This software is normally run as a service. CLC client software, such as Workbenches and gridworkers, contact the CLC License Server to obtain a network license when needed. For a description of how to download and install a license on a CLC License Server, please refer to the following section in the CLC License Server manual: http://resources.qiagenbioinformatics.com/manuals/clclicenseserver/current/index.php?manual=License_download.html.
The same number of network plugin licenses as there are CLC gridworker licenses for the CLC Server setup are required. A license order ID is used when downloading a single license file. This license file includes information about how many network licenses are associated with the license order ID.
