Activation codes or Maintenance ID
Activation Codes and Maintenance ID are included in the Order
emails sent to the administrator. These emails are saved in the D&LC
interface and available from the link below:
It also includes the Welcome Email with the account login.
Permission levels in D&LC
Only License Administrators or
Authorized License Administrators will have access to the D&LC to
obtain Download links and License activation codes.
In the D&LC interfaces they are listed in the menu
Administration > Account Members
the List of ACTIVE Computers and/or Servers
The D&LC lists the devices
(machines with node locked licenses) and license servers for your
company from the menu Active Licenses > By Computer or Active
licenses > By Server.
Each machine is identified by the Computer/ServerID where the 12 first characters correspond to the
MAC address of the machine.
The Alias, when available, corresponds to the machine/server
hostname. It can also include offline machines if the machines have not
been activated using the standard online process.
Note that the term Active Computer & Servers
does not mean there is currently an active license on the given machine. It
only means that the specific computer/server had been used to host a license
from your company and the license may or may not be still active on the
given machine. The Active status is discussed in point 11.
11. What does ACTIVE
vs RETURNED Device/Server means and when should I use the RETURNED option?
An ACTIVE computer or server
does not necessary mean that there is an active license on the given computer.
It means that the given Computer/server has been used to host a license for the
associated company and cannot host a license that belongs to another
The Status can be changed to RETURNED (for Computer only)
using the Return Computer option. However, note that this option will
"black list" the Computer (as well as returning the licenses to the
pool) so that the computer can no longer activate a license.
The RETURNED option should only be used when an
administrator cannot physically locate a machine and needs to return the
licenses to their license pool.
Note also that the administrator should check that the
licenses are/will be de-activated from this machine.
Returning a license server is not
currently possible. Please contact Technical Support for assistance.
Should the Returned option be used by mistake and the
Computer is black listed (no new licenses can be activated on it), please
contact Technical Support for assistance.
12. How do I know if
a license is currently installed on a given machine/server ?
The fact that the status of a
Computer/Server is set to Active does not mean that the license is currently
running on this machine (see point 11).
To check that there is an active
license on a machine, select/search for the machine in the list of Active
If there are no products shown in the
"Add-ons" list, it means that no licenses are currently installed/active on this device.
If there are some products listed in the Add-ons list and
the status is "License Generated", it means that a license for
this specific product is currently installed on this device. If the status
is different, it means that some licenses are not yet installed on the given
machine. In this case, the machine needs to connect to the D&LC by
activating or deactivating a license which will update its status.
The Quantity of active licenses is available in
the Units Mapped area.
13. How can I check
if there are available licenses on one of my contracts?
The quantity of available
seats for a given contract and product can be checked using the
- in the
list of active Computers or Servers select any active device
- then click on Map Add-ons and
search for a specific contract ID (MNT-XXXXXXX)
- if the contract is not listed it
means there are no remaining seats for it
- if the contract is listed, you will see the total number
of seats of the contract in the column called Total Units in Line Item,
and the number of available seats in the column called Available Units
in Line Item, for each product.
14. How Map Add-ons
and Return Add-ons options work?
Map Add-ons or Return Add-ons
allows administrators to assign or remove some licenses from a given device
directly in the D&LC interface. However, the licenses will not be activated/deactivated until the given device connects
to the server using the Harris License Administrator tool and by entering an
activation code to activate/de-activate a license.
