Managing Licenses

Licensing for your HCL software is administered through HCL Software License & Download portal. This portal is FlexNet-based web application to manage software entitlements and licenses.

You must have ordered software. When a software order is placed and acknowledged, a software entitlement is created. You can then create the devices and map the software entitlement with the devices. Every device is associated to a server ID. This server ID is applied in the product. Multiple software entitlements can be created based on your requirements. Follow the instructions in Software Order Acknowledgment document that you received to activate your entitlement, create devices, and download the software from the Portal.

If you do not have access to the Internet, you can install and configure a local license server.
