Updating the Current License
In Parallels Server Bare Metal, you can use the
vzlicupdate utility to update the license currently installed on the Parallels server. When executed, the utility tries to connect to the Parallels Key Authentication (KA) server and to retrieve a new license and install it on the server. To update your license, do the following:
- Make sure that the Parallels server where you wish to update the license is connected to the Internet.
- Execute the following command on the server:
Start updating license [6E62.3D01.6BEC.E8D7.CE42.4517.68CB.E102]
vzlicupdate tries to access the KA server having the hostname of
ka.parallels.com. However, you can explicitly specify what KA server to use using the
# vzlicupdate --server ka.server.com
In this case, the
vzlicupdate utility will try to connect to the KA server with the hostname of
ka.server.com, to get a new license from this server, and to install it on the server where
vzlicupdate has been executed.
Note: Your physical server must be assigned at least one public IPv4 address for the correct operation of the
