Licensing ControlSuite

A license server must be installed on at least one system in your deployment. All ControlSuite components pull licenses from this license server and maintain local "license cache" so that they can stay licensed for 7 days if connection to license server is lost. All licensing is performed in the Configuration Assistant for all products. The license information can be viewed within the individual products consoles, but cannot be changed in this view. ControlSuite utilizes a Licensing Entitlement Portal where license servers, accounts and users are managed, and license entitlements are activated and deployed.

  • The license server is installed with the ControlSuite Shared Services Installer.
  • It runs as a NDI License Service Windows service.
  • It installs to: C:\Program Files\Nuance\Shared Services\Licensing.
