To reactivate your Security Center license for the changes you made to the list of Directory servers while the Config Tool workstation has no Internet access, you must use a second workstation to download your license file from GTAP, and then apply the license file using your first workstation.

What you should know

This procedure fits in the context of reactivating your Security Center license on a Failover Directory system.


  1. In the License management dialog box, click Save to file to save the composite validation key to a file.

    The validation key is a sequence of numbers (in hexadecimal text format) generated by Security Center that uniquely identifies your server. The validation key is used to generate the license key that unlocks your Security Center software. The license key that is generated can only be applied to the server identified by the validation key.

    A text file named validation.vk is saved to your default Downloads folder. Make sure you copy this file to a location (this can be a USB key) that you can access from another computer that has Internet access.
  2. Return to the Config Tool workstation.
  3. In the License management dialog box, click Manual activation.
  4. In the Manual activation dialog box, browse for the license key (.lic file), and click Open.

  5. Click Activate.
