You must license your Address Manager or DNS/DHCP Server virtual machine before you begin working with it.

The following task applies to both Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server virtual machines.

Update the Address Manager or DNS/DHCP Server license using either the update interactively command or the update clientID command. BlueCat recommends using the update interactively command.

You will find your Client ID and Activation key in the documentation accompanying your purchase agreement.

  3. From Main Session mode, type configure license and press ENTER.
  4. Type update interactively and press ENTER.
  5. At the activation key prompt, type Y.
  6. Enter the Client ID. If the key is valid, go to step 7. If you receive an error, check the key and try again.
  7. Enter the Activation key. If the key is valid, go to step 8. If you receive an error, check the key and try again.
