License Service allows for automatic updates of Keys. This is useful when it comes time to renew or if keys need to be reconfigured. Only a Service Restart is required to apply any key changes.
Note: License Service is only available in Software versions 2013.10.25.1 or later, and requires a special Key configuration. If you’d like to switch to license service please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you started.
Note2: If you choose to use license service all instance must use it. ie. one instance cant use a CPU or WINDOWS id Key while others use the License Service.
Note3: You server will need inbound and outbound connections allowed to the following web services.
