    Hi,

    You just add the extra licenses by clicking activate and entering the activation ID (starting ACAJ for advanced or BCAJ for base).

    These licenses are incremental so the one adds to the others.

    Hi Jeroen,

     

    Thanks for your reply, but also according to avid interplay guide we need to run application manager not avid license control to activate additional license.

    Hi Johan,

    That depends on the Interplay/Mediacentral version you are running.

    In the application manager you should (after a minute and all has synced up) see a button called "Activate seats". 

    This will give you the ability to add extra licenses, online or offline.

    (I have setup an Interplay cluster with 2 seperate activation ID's for Base connections with the Application manager and can provide screenshots if needed.)

    Re: Update MEDIA CENTRAL ADVANCED CONNECTION license

    Hi Jeroen,

    We activated the license and the activation done successfully, but we already have two interplay engine server (Main , Backup for Failover cluster) when i open avid license control in main interplay engine its showing for me the new activation but in the second server we could not find the new activation ! is there any way to sync avid license activation between both servers ? 

    our interplay engine version is 3.7

    If this system ID is registered as a cluster (obviously because it was bought that way) the activation ID can be used twice to activate the licenses. So you do the exact same thing on the second node so a failover does not cause you to loose licenses.

    (For your info, In older versions of Interplay the licenses were stored in the Interplay database itself and you only needed to activate once for all nodes...but those days are gone.)
