Licensing

The ExaLINK Fusion has several features that can be unlocked by adding a license. This license is installed onto the device at the factory prior to shipping.

Note

Firmware versions from 1.7.0 to 1.14.0 have a "support date" requirement. A valid license with end-of-support date after the indicated date was required to install these firmware versions.

This requirement has been removed as of 1.15.0.

Please contact support if you need to roll back to a version earlier than 1.15.0 and your device did not ship with a suitable license with "support date" included.

Adding a License

If for some reason the license that shipped with your device was lost and needs to be reinstalled, the license can be re-entered into the Fusion by issuing the config license set command. Once entered, this command will prompt you to enter in the license key provided to you by Exablaze sales/support. You should paste the license text and then press ctrl-D, as follows:

[email protected]> config license set
Enter license key, press Ctrl-D when done
Serial Number : EXALINK-FUSION

License activated

Alternatively, the license file can be copied across from your PC to the Fusion using sftp, for example:

$ sftp [email protected]
[email protected]'s password:
sftp> put EXALINK-FUSION_license.txt license.txt

Once the license file has been copied, the Fusion can be instructed to reload the license to enable any new features using the config license reload command:

[email protected]> config license reload
Reloading license file...
License file reloaded

Note

License files are stored in a persistent area of the Fusion's file system or hardware and are not overwritten by firmware upgrades.
