Vault Properties License Tab

Get a licensed product from SoleraTec. You can purchase a licensed product online or download a trial version from SoleraTec's website. By default, this product comes with a seven day evaluation license. At the end of the evaluation period, you can request an extended evaluation product key or purchase a product license through the same sales channels. For more information see Product Licensing.

If you run the software longer than seven days with an evaluation license, your Vaults will shut down. Until a license is purchased and added, the Vaults run in increments of only two hours.

From Vault Properties, use the License tab to manage Vault licenses.

The Summary group displays your license totals for the selected Vault.
The Host Id group displays the Vault Host Id. The Host Id information is used to activate your product key.
The Installed Licenses group displays all the individual licenses assigned to a Vault. The license statistics shown are Serial #, Type, Capacity, Expiration, Product Type, and Platform Type. Click the Add button to open the Add License window where you can add a new license by activating a product key, or import a license file. Select an installed license from the group and then click the Delete button to remove the license from the Vault.

Once the Add or Delete button is clicked, the changes are immediate.

You can add the same license as many times as you like, but the Vault Admin just overwrites the license file so only one instance is displayed in the Installed Licenses group.
