On the License window you get an overview of the used licenses. If a license used up, with the green “add” button you can order additional licenses. The additional license will be shown below the screen.
User Access #
If the License module is not restricted by the User Authorisation permission generally, the system user has also access to enhance licences. That access can be also restricted when the licensed module permission is marked as read only.
A short interruption of the connection to the license server has no influence on the functionality of the Ayrix. However, after 72 hours a failed license check the system will be deactivated and taken offline to protect against misuse.
The license is committed to the hardware ID of the CPU and IP address. Please consider that the IP address of the server is not changed anymore.
