Install licenses

Feb 26, 2018

Install licenses (Builds 23101, 22103, 21103, and 20104 and License Server VPX build 19800)

Considerations - Be aware of these considerations when using the Citrix Licensing Manager to allocate and download licenses:

  • The License Server requires internet access or configuration with a proxy server.
  • After you click Allocate and Download, you cannot cancel it. If the Allocate and Download fails, use My Account at citrix.com.
  • The Citrix Licensing Manager allocates most license access codes but doesn't support redownloading or reallocating of license files. You can return licenses on citrix.com and use the Citrix Licensing Manager to allocate them again. For redownloading, use My Account.
  • If you rename the license server, you must reallocate any license files allocated under the old license server name. 
  • The Citrix Licensing Manger gives you the option of choosing how to obtain your licenses:
    • Use license access code
    • Use downloaded license file - Builds 22103 and  21103 displays information about the licenses when you use the license access code and download license file methods.

In the Start menu, click All Programs > Citrix > Citrix Licensing Manager or from a remote machine, https://licenseservername:8083.

Use license access code:

  1. Select Use license access code and type the license access code (which is supplied in an email from Citrix) and choose Display Licenses. Your license entitlements display and you can choose which licenses and the quantity to install.
  2. Select a product from the displayed list, type the number of entitlements to install, and choose Install. To select more than one product, choose a product, click Install, choose the next product, click Install, and so on. They are processed in order. After you install all the licenses for a specific license access code, you cannot use that license access code again. If you must perform more transactions with that code, log on to My Account.
  3. To display the newly downloaded licenses, refresh the License Administration Console.
