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 for each newly installed AWS Elemental system.

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

  2. Bring up the web interface for the AWS Elemental Server 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 is installed.

  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 on each VM guest.
