V-Flex Licenses with ThinManager Activation

For instructions with pictures see the V-Flex Licenses with ThinManager Activation PDF

With V-FLEX licensing, ThinManager users now have the ability to purchase specific quantities of ThinManager terminal connection licenses - not just in multiples of 5. In addition, these quantities can be broken up by the customer as needed. The V-Flex Licenses are available as Redundant or Single Server. The Mirrored Redundancy has been retired. V-FLEX licensing is available with FactoryTalk Activation (FTA) or traditional ThinManager product licensing (TMA). This article will cover how to manage and apply V-FLEX licensing with ThinManager Activation (TMA). While the process is fundamentally the same, the steps and software tools involved are quite different.

V-FLEX licensing with traditional ThinManager Product Licensing (TMA) is ordered through your distributor. Whether you order Redundancy or not, you will receive a single ThinManager License Number. If you are deploying Redundancy, you will apply the single license to your Primary ThinManager Server. Once you enable Automatic Synchronization, the Redundancy license will automatically be shared with the Secondary ThinManager Server. Upon completing an order through your distributor, you will receive an email that will include your TMA license certificate and License Number.
