Setting up Automatic UDC2 License Deployment

Goal

You want to supply UDC2 converted devices with a license automatically as soon as they are registered with UMS.

Solution

You can use one or more IGEL Linux Thin Clients (version 5.09.100 or newer) as license servers in combination with UMS.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Prepare the thin client for its role as a license server:
    1. In the thin client's IGEL setup, go to System > Remote Management.
    2. Enable UDC automatic license deployment server.
    3. Apply or Save your setting.
    4. Attach the UDC2 token.
  2. Configure Automatic UDC License Deployment in UMS:
    1. Go to UMS Administration > Global Configuration > Licenses > UDC2 Deployment.
    2. Check Enable Automatic UDC2 Deployment.
    3. Save your Settings.
    4. Look for the thin client in the License Server list. If needed, use the refresh button to refresh the list.
    5. Select the thin client in the License Server list.
    6. Review the Connection state, License type, License OS and Number of licenses. If needed, refresh this information by clicking the Check license server again button.

      When a new, unlicensed UDC2 device is now registered with UMS, it should automatically receive a license. Likewise, when starting a new license server, it will poll for as yet unlicensed UDC2 devices every 5 minutes and provide them with licenses. You can check this in the Deployed licenses list.

    7. Reboot the UDC2 devices to apply the licenses.
