Downloading a license via the web interface
Licenses are installed on a single server or on the master node of a job node or grid node setup.
To download and install a license:
- Log into the web administrative interface of the single server or master node as an administrative user.
When there is no existing license file for the CLC Server, or there is a license file that is not valid for the version being run, a warning message is shown (figure 10.2). In these cases, a license file needs to be downloaded.
When a valid license is present, the messages in yellow will not be present (figure 10.3). In this case, no further action to update the CLC Server license is needed. You can skip the next steps in this section.
- Under the Management () tab, open the Download License () tab.
- Enter the Order ID supplied by QIAGEN into the Order ID field and click on the "Download and Install License..." button (figure 10.1).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not received an Order ID.
The CLC Server must be restarted for new license files to be loaded. Details about restarting can be found in Starting and stopping the server.
Each time you download a license file, a new file is created in the
licenses folder under the CLC Server installation area. If you are upgrading an existing license file, delete the old file from this area before restarting.
If you are working on a system that does not have access to the external network, then please refer to Download a license on a non-networked machine.
