Privilege Manager for Unix 6.1.1 - Release Notes for Unix

Product licensing

A newly installed Privilege Manager policy server comes with an evaluation license. For more information about the Privilege Manager licensing options, see Privilege Manager licensing in the One Identity Privilege Manager for Unix Administration guide.

Although licenses are allocated on a per-agent basis, you install licenses on Privilege Manager policy servers.

No special commands are required to register or license the clients with policy servers. Hosts using the Privilege Manager agents are automatically granted a license once a request is received on the Privilege Manager policy server by means of the pmrun command.

To install a license file

  1. Copy the .xml license file to the policy server.
  2. To install the license, run:
    # /opt/quest/sbin/pmlicense –l <license_file>

    This command displays your currently installed license and the details of the new license to be installed.

  3. When it asks, "Would you like to install the new license (Y/N) [Y]?", press Enter, or type: Y
  4. If there are other policy servers configured in your policy server group, it forwards the license configuration to the other servers.

See the One Identity Privilege Manager for Unix Administration Guide for more information about the syntax and usage of the pmlicense command.
