License Server Maintenance
Building Operation licenses are controlled by license policies regarding the transaction of licenses. Therefore, it is important that a replacement or reinstallation of the license server is carefully planned.
Installing the License Administrator and the License Server
You install License Administrator and License Server to administer the activation, return, repair, check out, and the check in of Building Operation licenses. A SmartStruxure solution system has to include one software license server. The License Administrator has to be installed on all clients or servers that run any licensed Building Operation products.
