Security Analytics manages licensing through a Local License Server (LLS). Each client appliance is shipped with an installed LLS. This topic provides instructions for synchronizing the Local License Server (LLS) with the online repository from a server that is not connected to the Internet. Please refer to Entitlement Capability Implementation for a functional description of the LLS.

Prerequisites

If the Security Analytics server is not connected to the Internet, you can perform offline synchronization of entitlements through the View Server page in Download Central. You can:

  • Download an Offline Capability Request in Security Analytics for submission to Download Central.
  • Within 24 hours, upload to Security Analytics an Offline Response that was received from Download Central.

Download a Capability Request for Submission to Download Central

To download an offline capability request from this Security Analytics LLS into a local file for processing by a back-office server.

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.
  2. In the options panel, select Licensing.

    The Licensing panel is displayed with the Overview tab open.

  3. Select the Settings tab.

  4. In the Download Offline Request section, click Download Request.

    The Offline Capability Request file (OfflineCapailityRequest.bin) is downloaded to the local file system.

Upload an Offline Capability Response to Security Analytics

If the Security Analytics server is not connected to the Internet, you can perform offline synchronization of entitlements through the View Server page in Download Central. To upload an offline capability response (response.bin) file saved to the local file system from Download Central:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.
  2. In the options panel, select Licensing.

    The Licensing panel is displayed with the Overview tab open.

  3. Select the Settings tab.

  4. In the Upload Offline Response section, click Upload Response.

    A dialog prompts for the file.

  5. Browse for and select the response.bin file so that it is displayed in the Upload File (bin) field.
  6. Click Upload.

    The entitlements are uploaded to Security Analytics and the licenses added to the grid in the Overview Licensing tab. They are available for licensing appliances.
