3.10. Multiple Palisade Licenses

Applies to:
Palisade network software 6.x/7.x

What if I already have a Palisade network license on my server?

This depends on the major version of Server Manager and of the license. The major version of Server Manager is the first digit of the Server Manager version displayed in the title bar. (If none is displayed, the major version is 6.) The major version of the license is the first digit of the serial number, or the first numeric in the Activation ID.

New major version:

If the major version of the new license is greater than the major version of Server Manager, you must upgrade Server Manager. You might also want to upgrade Server Manager to get new features or bug fixes. Here's how:

  1. Run Server Manager and click Stop Service, then close Server Manager.
  2. Run the server installer.
  3. Run Server Manager and click Start Service.
  4. Download the client installer to the folder where you're keeping client installers.
  5. Activate your new Activation ID or get a new license certificate, depending on your license type. The email with your new license information should tell you which type of license you have.
  6. Install the new client installer on the clients; see Client Setup procedure.

It's not possible to have multiple versions of Palisade Server Manager installed on the same server, but there's no reason to do it anyway. A later version of Server Manager can handle all the licenses that an earlier version can handle.

Not a new major version:

If the major version of the new license is less than or equal to the major version of Server Manager, you can follow this shorter procedure:

  1. Download the client installer to the folder where you're keeping client installers.
  2. Activate your new Activation ID or get a new license certificate, depending on your license type. The email with your new license information should tell you which type of license you have.
  3. Install the new client installer on the clients; see Client Setup procedure.
