A valid license file should be installed on the Citrix ADC appliance. The license should support at least as many Gbps as the expected maximum Gi-LAN throughput.
License files should be copied through an SCP client to the /nsconfig/license of the appliance, as shown in the screen capture below.
shell ls /nsconfig/license/ CNS_V3000_SERVER_PLT_Retail.lic ssl
Do a warm restart to apply the new license, as shown in the screen capture below.
