License Management

Oct 08, 2015

The License Management step in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard, provides a number of license management options.

Note: For an overview of AppDNA licensing, see Licenses.

The options in this step are:

  • Activate – Choose this option to activate Citrix licenses – for example, after buying a full license after running in trial mode. When you activate a license, it is imported into the AppDNA license server and applied to a specific AppDNA database. You can also activate additional licenses against a database that is already licensed. After you click Next, you choose the database to license and then you download and activate the license. See License Database for more information.
  • Inspect – Choose this option to inspect the licenses that have been applied to a database. When you click Next, you choose the database whose licenses you want to inspect before moving to the Inspect License step.
  • Transfer – AppDNA licenses are tied to the AppDNA database and the machine on which the AppDNA license server is installed. If you need to move the AppDNA license server from one machine or environment to another, you need to transfer the licenses for all your AppDNA databases using this option. When you click Next, the Transfer License step opens.

    It is not necessary to transfer licenses if you simply want to move a database from a SQL Server installation on one machine to a SQL Server installation on another machine – provided there is no change in the location of the AppDNA license server.

  • Advanced – Choose this option to inspect the state of the AppDNA license server. When you click Next, you choose the database whose license server's state you want to inspect before moving to the Advanced Licensing step.

To open this step

  1. From the Windows Start > Programs menu on the AppDNA server machine, choose Citrix AppDNA > Management Tools > Configure AppDNA.
  2. In the first step in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard, select Licensing, and then click Next.
