3.20. Changing 6.x Standalone Workstation to Enterprise Client

Applies to: Palisade software releases 6.x
If you have a 7.x network, see Changing 7.x Standalone Workstation to Enterprise Client.

Can I convert a trial or an activated standalone copy to an Enterprise Network client?

You will need to know the port number and server name of your license server, as well as the Activation ID of your Enterprise Network license.

6.0.1 and later standalone licenses can be converted to Enterprise Network clients without reinstalling. If you have 6.0.0, first upgrade to the current version with a standalone installer; there is no need to uninstall 6.0.0.

For 6.0.1 and later, follow this procedure:

  1. On the user's workstation, log on to Windows as a full administrator.
  2. Launch the Palisade software. If License Manager does not come up spontaneously, click Help » License Manager.
  3. If this workstation has an activated standalone license, click Deactivate and follow the prompts on screen.
  4. Click Activate, and enter your Enterprise Network Activation ID.
  5. You will then be prompted to enter the server information.
  6. Click OK, and if a network license is available on that server the software will immediately be activated on this workstation. License Manager will describe this as an enterprise license.

Reminder: If you later give this user a new computer, or reassign the software to a different user, you must first deactivate the license on this workstation through License Manager. That returns the license to the pool of available licenses on your server.
