DESCRIPTION: Overview of Cluster Pair Licensing For E-Class SRA Appliances
Prior to the 9.0.0 software release, a single license file could be used to license an HA (high availability) pair of appliances. This license file contained both appliance serial numbers and was imported on the AMC master node. Starting with version 9.0.0 there have been changes in licensing: each node in the HA pair must be licensed individually. This is because the new license file format contains an authentication code that is specific to each appliance.
License files are downloaded from MySonicWall in the My Products area.
When viewing your appliance details in the My Products section on the MySonicWall web site, you will see an area titled Update licenses in your appliance. This is where you download your license file.
If you do not see an option to download a license file for version 9.0 or later, you must update your license file to the newer 9.0 license file format.
For detailed instructions, see Managing Licenses in the following documents (the content is the same, just the format differs):
