If your license is already linked to your hardware, the license
allocation process can use the hardware serial number. Otherwise, you must type
the license activation code (LAC).
You can partially allocate licenses as required for your deployment.
For example, if your license file contains ten licenses, but your current
requirement is for only six licenses, you can allocate six licenses now, and
allocate additional licenses later. You cannot allocate more than the total
number of licenses present in your license file.
