Installing licenses silently

Note: Micro Focus recommends that you use the Micro Focus License Administration tool to install the licenses. You may only need to install licenses silently in some specific scenarios - for example, as part of a silent installation when you are distributing COBOL server with your applications.

After the application installation is complete you can install the license silently by executing the following commands:



  • If you have access to the Internet and an authorization code, run the following as root:
    cd /var/microfocuslicensing/bin
    ./ -authorize AuthorizationCode
  • If you don't have access to the Internet but have a file from Micro Focus that contains the license string, run the following as root:
    cd /var/microfocuslicensing/bin
    ./ -install FileName

    where FileName is the name of the text file that contains all the license strings to be used.
