Beginning with Virtualization Manager version 6.1, you can upgrade licenses without manual intervention. When the appliance detects that a new license is available, it downloads and applies the license automatically. The earlier licenses remain operable, and the methods of online and offline license key activation remain the same.

If there is no internet connectivity when Virtualization Manager starts, the automatic license synchronization will not be enabled.

The automatic license update checks begin after you activate your first commercial license key, either through online or offline activation, and does not perform the check for an evaluation license.

By default, the automatic license synchronization is enabled, and the appliance checks for license updates every 24 hours. The first license check is performed one hour after the initial startup of the application. This value is controlled by the license.synchronizer.initial.delay property. You can modify the default settings in the System Properties page of Virtualization Manager.

  1. Click Setup > Advanced Setup.
  2. Click System Properties.
  3. Click the Value column next to license.synchronizer.check.frequency. The minimum frequency is 24 hours.
  4. To disable automatic license synchronization, click in the Value column next to license.synchronizer.enabled, and set the property to false.
