To manage licenses for SolarWinds Platform products, including licenses for additional polling engines, additional web server, or HA servers, use the web-based License Manager.

What can you do with the Windows License Manager?

  • Deactivate licenses on one computer and activate them on another computer without contacting SolarWinds Customer Service.
  • Upgrade production license levels.
  • Upgrade from evaluation licenses to production licenses.
  • Synchronize licenses with the licensing server.

You cannot activate the license for a product that is released after the end of your maintenance period. You can activate the license for a product released before the end of your maintenance period at any time.
