|Issue||AM 7.1 (all platforms): how to install a license upgrade on AM7.1|
The following is an extract from the online "Help" topic in the security console.
Before installing a license update, consider all of the consequences carefully. For example, the license must allow enough users to use the system. Also keep in mind:
Important: Only the Super Admin can perform license-related tasks.
Note: To upgrade a license, add the upgrade license as a new license. Any new features take effect immediately and any increases to the license limits are added to the current limits.
To install a new license update:
Note: After installing a new license that adds features, you must log off the Security Console and then log on again before the system menus can display the newly licensed features.
|Notes||If you are upgrading the license on an RSA Appliance, the process is slightly different. The licenses will always be contained in a .zip, and will include all previous license files in addition to certificates and other critical data for the license itself. |
Incorrect - Open the appliance license upgrade zipfile, and when prompted for the filename, point to the .zip filename
correct - Extract the zipfile to a set of files. When prompted for the file, browse to the individual .xml file with teh proper license information
It is always prudent to make a backup before you perform a license upgrade.
