License Management

The EcoStruxure Building Operation license system consists of, for example, a License Server, WorkStation with client tools, and the Enterprise Server. The number of each component varies depending on the system size and architecture.

In this example, the License Server and Enterprise Server are located on the same computer. Several WorkStations check out licenses from the License Server through the local area network. Network licenses are activated on the License Server by the License Activation Server that is controlled by Schneider Electric.

License System Installation and Configuration

Schneider Electric recommends that you install the license server framework before installing other EcoStruxure Building Operation software applications and SmartX servers. The license server installation is included in the License Administrator license package. During the installation of WorkStation or Enterprise Server, the installation software asks for the address to the license server.

For more information, see Installation Example .

Network License Management

When you activate a license, the license is transferred from the License Activation Server to your License Server. When activating a license, details about the transaction and registration details are stored with the license on the License Server.

For more information, see Network License Management .

Local License Management

A local license is activated from a license file with the extension .asr. Local licenses must be activated to a dedicated WorkStation or Enterprise Server computer. The local license cannot be distributed and shared between different computers as the network license can.
