EV Reach Server - License Distribution - Implementing the Standalone Licensing Service

Last modified on 2023/10/13 15:16

The EV Reach Server can be used to completely host and distribute EV Reach licenses on premise.

This is primarily used if internet access is completely unavailable in the environment that will be managed by the EV Reach Consoles.

Note: If the EV Reach Console machine does not have internet access, but the EV Reach Server can be granted internet access, the Licensing Service Proxy is recommended instead.

Implementation

Enabling Standalone Licensing Service

After the EV Reach Server has been published across your infrastructure, open the EV Reach Server’s Server Configuration area, select the Licensing Server Settings and select the Standalone Licensing Server Mode:

Onsite License Distribution

Assigning Licenses

Now that the Standalone Licensing Services have been activated, a pool of licenses will need to be assigned to the server.

In the EV Reach Licensing Server tab, click Assign Licenses, and the EV Reach Onsite License code window will appear.

You will now be prompted for the EV Reach Onsite License code from the previous step:

After entering the code, you will be prompted to select the pool of licenses you’d like to reserve for the onsite EV Reach Licensing Service:

Note: Licenses that are currently in use or expired will be unavailable. All licenses from the pool must be un-allocated before they will be available for Onsite activation.

Note: Multiple licenses can be selected. See the section Assigning Multiple Licenses Section

After clicking on Generate Token, the Response Code will appear:

Click the Copy to Clipboard and paste this code in the EV Reach Onsite License prompt window on the EV Reach Server. After clicking Activate, the server will show the following screen:

The my.goverlan.com portal will show the following information on the licenses that are being used for the Onsite Licensing Server:

Using Onsite Licenses

Once licenses are assigned to the EV Reach Server, admins can now launch the EV Reach Console.

Notes:

  • EV Reach Consoles are now in Floating Mode and will not be prompted to sign in.
  • Once the EV Reach Console process is closed, it will release the license to the Onsite EV Reach Licensing Server.

Note: If an admin is currently signed into their EV Reach Console, they will need to manually sign out of the EV Reach Console via the Application > Sign out area.

Assigning Multiple Licenses

Multiple licenses can be selected to be distributed by the Onsite EV Reach Licensing Service.

Notes:

  • When an operator launches a EV Reach Console, they will be prompted to select one of the multiple licenses available.
  • There is no way to statically assign a license to a specific operator machine.

Onsite License Management

Reviewing License Usage

The EV Reach Licensing Server tab will show a live view of all licenses that are in use:

Clicking on the View License Usage button will open the License Usage window. Here you can view all information pertinent to the EV Reach Consoles that have licenses in use:

Releasing Licenses

Since EV Reach Consoles are in Floating Mode, licenses can only be released via two methods:

  1. Closing the EV Reach Console process on the Operator machine that has the license in use.
  2. Restarting the EV Reach Server service via the Server Controls tab.

Deregistering Licenses

If new licenses are purchased or if the Onsite EV Reach Licensing Server needs to be migrated, you must first deregister the license pool currently activated on the server.

Via the EV Reach Licensing Server tab, click Deregister Licenses. The Onsite License Deregistration window will appear:

Note: If the EV Reach Server does not have an email client installed, click the second option: “Release, show me and copy the confirmation code to the clipboard.”

After selecting one of the release options, the confirmation code will be shown:

Log on to the my.goverlan.com portal, select the EV Reach Server tab and click the Deregister Licenses:

The my.goverlan.com portal will show a pop up requesting the code acquired from the Onsite Licensing Server from the previous step:

After entering the code, the portal will confirm that the licenses have been successfully released.
