Free License Patch – Instructions to Update

Step 1:

Download the license_update.tgz and the license file (.lic) provided to you via email. 

Step 2:

Using WinSCP (or other secure file transfer program) move both files to the /home/indeni folder on the Indeni server.

Step 3:

Connect to the Indeni server via SSH or PuTTY and perform the following:

  1. Type in ‘tar xzvf license_update.tgz‘ then [enter]. It should extract the file.
  2. Type in ‘./‘ then [enter] to run the script. To complete the process, please enter your Indeni WebUI credentials. The default credentials are: Username: admin | Password: admin123!

A successful output will show you the updated license details, which should match the .lic file name provided to you.
