System > Licenses Overview
Services upgrade licensing and related functionality is provided by a License Manager that runs on the SMA appliance. The License Manager allows you to purchase licenses directly or to turn on free trials to preview a product before buying. The License Manager communicates periodically (hourly) with the SonicWall Inc. licensing server to verify the validity of your licenses. If the License Manager is unable to communicate with the SonicWall licensing server, an alert appears that reads, "Unable to reach License Manager for an extended period. Please ensure Virtual Appliance can contact SonicWall or the unit will be disabled." This message appears during a grace period of five days before the product is disabled.
The System > Licenses page provides a link to activate, upgrade, or renew SonicWall Inc. Security Services licenses. From this page in the Secure Mobile Access management interface, you can manage all the SonicWall Inc. Security Services licenses for your SMA appliance.
