Citrix ADC

Licensing

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.

EXample:

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.

EXample:

reboot -warm

Are you sure you want to restart NetScaler (Y/N)? [N]:y

Done

After the restart completes, verify that the license has been properly applied, by using the show license CLI.

In the example below a 3Gbps Platinum license has been successfully installed.

EXample:

    > show license
