Web-based License Manager in SAM

For information on SAM licenses, see the SAM licensing model.

Beginning with SolarWinds Orion 2016.2 products, such as NPM 12.0.1 or SAM 6.3, the web-based License Manager replaces the previous stand-alone Windows License Manager.

With the web-based License Manager, you can manage licenses for Orion Platform products, Additional Polling Engines (APEs), Additional Web Servers (AWS's), and High Availability pools on a single Orion Web Console page.

The web-based License Manager needs the main Orion server to stay up. If the Orion server is down for more than 14 days, your licenses may be invalidated.

  • Click Settings > All Settings, scroll down, and click License Manager in the Details grouping.

The web-based License Manager replaces the stand-alone Windows License Manager in Orion Platform products. If you have upgraded from a previous version of your Orion Platform product, you can still use the stand-alone Windows version for Orion Platform 2016.2 and lower. New installs use the web-based License Manager only. If you have upgraded to the new web-based License Manager, SolarWinds recommends that you uninstall the standalone version.

What does the web-based License Manager show?

The License Manager reviews and displays any of the following licenses it finds:

  • Full and evaluation licenses for installed Orion Platform products
  • Licenses for Additional Polling Engines and Additional Web Servers
  • Added licenses that have not been assigned yet
  • Orion Scalability Engine Evaluation license for evaluating APEs and AWS's
  • Orion High Availability licenses

All licenses include information about their duration and expiration dates, Orion Platform product version installed, license type and status, and server that is using the license. Activated licenses display the activation key.
