Managing licenses

Licenses can be added at the time of Control Compliance Suite (CCS) installation or at a later time from the console's License view. The core license must be provided during installation. The core license, CCS_Core.slf, is required for installing the Directory Support Service and the CCS Application Server components.

The Control Compliance Suite licenses are stored in the ELS (Enterprise License Store) store of the product (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Licenses).

In the CCS Console, users can view and add CCS license files from the License view. Users can view only those features that have a valid license.

If the core license expires, the CCS Console cannot be started. The core license can be renewed from the stand-alone utility Symantec.CSM.LicenseUtil.exe that is stored in the following location:

C:\Program Files\Symantec\CCS\Reporting and Analytics\Directory Support Service\

See Adding licenses on the Directory Server.

If a component has an expired license, the expired component's features are not displayed in the CCS Console. The system displays a message to indicate that a license has expired.

Symantec provides licenses with grace periods for Control Compliance Suite. If any of the component's licenses are in the grace period, a warning message is displayed.
