Step c: Download Licenses from the AWS Elemental User Community

  1. Follow the instructions in Downloading AWS Elemental Server Software to get to the Order Detail page on the AWS Elemental Support Center Activations.

  2. Hover over the three-bar icon on the right of the screen to bring up a small menu. Choose License(s).

  3. On the License Information page, choose Generate.

  4. On the Generate Licenses page, select Choose File to browse to and select your .key file.

  5. This returns you to the Generate Licenses page, with your .key file selected. Choose Upload License Key.

  6. This takes you to the View Licenses page, where you can download a .tgz file. This is a compressed, aggregated file that contains all the license files that you need for this system.

  7. Save the .tgz file to a place accessible to the AWS Elemental system that will be using this license, for example, a directory on your workstation called “licenses”. Make a note of the path.

    The files are named lic-download-<hostname>.tgz.

  8. Repeat these steps for each hardware unit that will have AWS Elemental software.
