Module Suite installation guide: Importing the activation key


This guide covers the software Activation phase that is part of the Module Suite installation guide.

  • Deployment
  • Installation
  • Activation
  • Configuration
  • Post-installation patching

This phase covers the activation of the modules previously deployed and installed on the system during the Deployment and Installation phases. The related operations will be performed using the Module Suite administration tools, as well as the Content Server standard administration tools.

Only perform after previous phases are complete

The guide assumes that the Module Deployment and Module Installation phases have already been completed on the target environment. If that is not the case, please go back to the Installation overview.

Licensing on a Clustered Environment

Since version 3.1.0, if the installation is performed on a multi-server architecture is no longer necessary to repeat the activation process on all the node of the cluster since the License Key information is stored in the Content Server's database.

Importing the License Key

  • As the system Admin user, open the Content Server Administration pages.

  • Locate the Core System - Feature Configuration section. Within this section, open the Import and Export Administration Settings tool.
    Open the import and export tool

  • Within the Import and Export Administration Settings page, locate the Import Administration Settings entry.
    Open the import configuration tool

  • In the File Path field, locate and select the AnswerModules Activation Key XML file. Then, click on "Import".
    Select the import file

  • Updating the activation key requires a system restart. Click "Continue to Restart" to be redirected to the Restart page.
    Import complete

  • Click Restart

  • Wait for the system to complete the Restart operation. Once complete, click Continue.
    Restart complete

  • After the restart, navigate to the AnswerModules administration pages to check the results of the activation operations.
    In the Content Server Administration pages, locate the AnswerModules Administration section. Within this section, open the Base Configuration tool.
