Because they installed that 60-day license in place of the license that came with the servers I no longer have that because the 60-day licenses expired. If it is in the box, its features should be available. Try to be specific with your questions if possible. Press Ctrl+P to print this page. It was a mixture of stuff i think I tried activating the Trial before I set the time then when I did set the time it must have decided that my trial period was up. I don't know, but I saw it on a forum one time and it worked on a few occasions. If you do not want to replace existing licenses, click Unlicensed in the License Information Status table to install licenses only on servers that are unlicensed.
Our procurement team is in touch with vendor for license purchase so here i just wanted to know where and how i will install that activation key. Thank you to everybody who contributed. So functionally, I think you can use trial license with 90days priod though recieved e-mail. Plus all the other little bells and whistles logging, etc. I found one more thing about e-mail address of Feature on Demand question. I checked FoD user guide and following description. I may not be able to try that until tomorrow night though.
It's usually one or the other that is the issue. For our remote clients we have had a good experience with Dell servers and their server products. If you want to use it again ,please contact Lenovo support team. I was hoping to activate this whilst I was with the machine but now I'm having to travel 2000 miles away without testing it. Paul, as Andy advises, hope there is a way that you won't have to make that 100 mile drive to get to the machine. Hi Obtained the trial keys but could not apply them for a few days. Being able to power cycle that annoying box in the middle of the night without driving to the datacenter.
The cost is on par with the Intel and Dell parts when looking at them as options to the overall server configuration. Splintered off from this sub-reddit. Same thing with the time settings, saw it in a post years ago. You cannot license a nonblade server by using a BladeSystem license. Usually FoD key site generate trial key with active 90days. Didn't know there was a 30 day trial license, looks like the one in the following thread will work though -.
I can't find any information anywhere about why they expired so quickly, or how I reactivate them by contacting the 'support team'. I have learnt a few lessons with this one. Although I could load this key successfully on one of the servers. Rebooted the server several times. Our primary server product line for our local clients is for the most part Intel branded servers that we build. Without really considering what that might mean I agreed.
All we need to do is configure the network setup, security settings, and the users to access the module. I'm looking for the remote console during the post, not after. You can only generate the trial key once. Hi folks, I'm a bit frustrated and I hope you can help me. Can anyone help me get back to the way things were? Any advice will be appreciated.
Really frustrating - why do they only give you a few hours to activate it? Might be able to find things useful for a lab. I want to be able to access the console of these hosts so I can remotely manage them. So it sounds like the free expired, and you're back to the default of no remote console. Isn't it reasonable to expect you're not near the machine when you request the license? It's a great help for everybody, just remember to keep the formatting please. Having a remote console is nothing. For those across the Atlantic have a good evening and to those in the U. I then put in the Key and bingo it worked locally.
You recieved e-mail that key have inactive. If actual expire date is correclty shown as 90 days but you recieved mail for trial license inactive, FoD database have something issue to manage expire date for this one. If you want it, you have to buy it. The time was set right, so we even changed the time so verify if this will have a affect. I then changed the ports as there is another machine in here using the same ports and added entries in the router for the required ports.
Please give me your sage advice and experience. . Yes, I am awake but not alone. What I'm looking to do is get back to the licenses that came with the servers. . . .
