Using AVEVA License Server OFFLINE Activation

AVEVA Licenses require license activation, a process whereby the authenticity of the license is verified against license records via the AVEVA License Activation Server and the license is bound to the license server from which the activation was initiated.

License activation requires communication over the Internet with the AVEVA License Activation Server. That communication can be either direct over the Internet (Online Activation) or indirect through a proxy computer (Offline Activation).

This Tech Note describes the process of activating an AVEVA license using OFFLINE activation.

Ending AVEVA License Server Grace Period

Certain conditions can cause the AVEVA Enterprise License Server to enter a License Grace Period. The Grace Period allows the server and licenses to operate normally for fifteen days. Once the fifteen day period has expired, the License Server will no longer allow licenses to be acquired. Removing the Grace Period mode will allow the License Server to function normally again. This tech note will provide instructions for two methods that can be used to remove the Grace Period mode from a License Server.
