Use this workflow to assign and activate licenses on automation servers that are not connected to Internet and cannot access License Activation Server (FNO).

Note:

Do not use this workflow if you are on a semi online system where the automation servers are not connected to Internet, but the Device Administrator is connected to the Internet.

For more information, see Semi Online System .
