Reactivating Your SolidNetwork License Manager

Whether you have recently added seats to your SolidNetwork License, renewed your subscription, or have had any trouble with your activation, it is sometimes necessary to reactivate your SolidNetwork Licenses in the License Manager Server application. Regardless of the reason, reactivating your network license can be done by following these easy steps:

In order to reactivate the license, first go to the Start Menu on the server computer and open the SolidNetwork License Manager Server application.

Before reactivation, it is important to visit the “License Borrowing” tab and make sure there are no licenses being borrowed. If there are, make sure the user returns them before moving forward.

Within the application, go to the Server Administration tab and click on “modify” from the License Information section.
