CloudBridge Licensing Overview

Apr 02, 2015

The process of allocating your CloudBridge licenses has been greatly simplified. The new licensing framework allows you to focus on getting maximum value from Citrix products.

In the CloudBridge configuration utility (GUI), you can use your hardware serial number (HSN) or your license activation code (LAC) to allocate your licenses. Alternatively, if a license is already present on your local computer, you can upload it to the appliance.

For all other functionality, such as returning or reallocating your license, you must use the licensing portal. Optionally, you can still use the licensing portal for license allocation. For more information about the licensing portal, see "http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX131110".

Note:
  • On a CloudBridge appliance, you can use the HSN or LAC to allocate your license or upload the license to the appliance from a local computer. On a CloudBridge VPX appliance, you can only upload the license to the appliance from a local computer.
  • You must purchase separate licenses for each appliance in a high availability (HA) pair. Make sure that the same type of licenses are installed on both the appliances. For example, if you purchase a platinum license for one appliance, you must purchase another platinum license for the other appliance.
