Step d: Install the License Files

Now that you have a .tgz compressed license file for each instance of the software you are running, you must point the software to it.

From your workstation, perform the following steps on each AWS Elemental Conductor File node.

  1. Navigate to the directory where you saved the .tgz file and unpack it.

  2. Bring up the web interface for the primary AWS Elemental Conductor File system. From the main menu, select Settings > Licenses. The Licenses screen appears.

  3. Select Choose File and navigate to the directory where you placed the license files. Select the file name with the hostname portion matching the hostname of this node.

  4. Back on the Licenses screen, choose Update. The license file will be installed. Be sure to install each license file: conductor.lic and ui.lic.

  5. Look at the information in the left pane and make sure that:

    • Total shows the expected number of licenses in the pool.

    • Expiration shows the expected expiry date for the licenses.

    • Product shows the correct product for the worker nodes.

    • Processing shows the expected CPU and GPU counts.

    • Pacakages shows the expted options. These are the add-on optionst built in to the AWS Elemental Server pooled license.

  6. Repeat on the secondary AWS Elemental Conductor File node.
