4.3.  Location and format of License Files

License files are delivered either in the form of text files (filename extension .license) or ZIP files (filename extension .zip). Transfer each file to your ThinLinc master server and place it in /opt/thinlinc/etc/licenses. Make sure that the transfer of the files uses binary mode, or the license file might not be verifiable. We recommend transferring via scp or sftp.

After adding new license files, either restart VSM Server by running /opt/thinlinc/libexec/service vsmserver restart or wait until the VSM Server automatically reads in the new licenses, something that happens once every 12 hours.


When running VSM Server in a High Availability setup (see Chapter 6, High Availability (HA) ), license files should be copied to /opt/thinlinc/etc/licenses on both nodes.
