Onsite GLS – Standalone

The Goverlan Reach Server can be used to completely host and distribute Goverlan licenses on premise.

This is primarily used if internet access is completely unavailable in the environment that will be managed by the Goverlan Reach Consoles.

NOTE:

If the Goverlan Reach Console machine does not have internet access, but the Goverlan Reach Server can be granted internet access, Onsite GLS – Proxy Mode is recommended instead.

Implementation

Enabling Standalone GLS

After the Goverlan Reach Server has been published across your infrastructure, open the Goverlan Reach Server’s Server Configuration area, select the Licensing Server Settings and select the Standalone Licensing Server Mode:

Onsite License Distribution

Assigning Licenses

Now that the Standalone Licensing Services have been activated, a pool of licenses will need to be assigned to the server.

In the Goverlan Licensing Server tab, click Assign Licenses, and the Goverlan Onsite License code window will appear.

Log on to the my.goverlan.com portal, select the Goverlan Server tab and click the Set as onsite licensing server button:

You will now be prompted for the Goverlan Onsite License code from the previous step:

After entering the code, you will be prompted to select the pool of licenses you’d like to reserve for the onsite GLS:

NOTE:

Licenses that are currently in use or expired will be unavailable. All licenses from the pool must be un-allocated before they will be available for Onsite activation.

NOTE:

Multiple licenses can be selected, for more information refer to the Assigning Multiple Licenses Section below.

After clicking on Generate Token, the Response Code will appear:

Click the Copy to Clipboard and paste this code in the Goverlan Onsite License prompt window on the Goverlan Reach Server. After clicking Activate, the server will show the following screen:

The my.goverlan.com portal will show the following information on the licenses that are being used for the Onsite Licensing Server:

Using Onsite Licenses

Once licenses are assigned to the Goverlan Reach Server, admins can now launch the Goverlan Reach Console.

Please note the following:

  • Goverlan Reach Consoles are now in Floating Mode and will not be prompted to sign in.
  • Once the Goverlan Reach Console process is closed, it will release the license to the Onsite Goverlan Licensing Server.
NOTE:

If an admin is currently signed into their Goverlan Reach Console, they will need to manually sign out of the Goverlan Reach Console via the Application > Sign out area.

Assigning Multiple Licenses

Multiple licenses can be selected to be distributed by the Onsite GLS.

Please note the following when using multiple licenses:

  • When an operator launches a Goverlan Reach Console, they will be prompted to select one of the multiple licenses available.
  • There is no way to statically assign a license to a specific operator machine.

Onsite License Management

Reviewing License Usage

The Goverlan Licensing Server tab will show a live view of all licenses that are in use:

Clicking on the View License Usage button will open the License Usage window. Here you can view all information pertinent to the Goverlan Reach Consoles that have licenses in use:

Releasing Licenses

Since Goverlan Reach Consoles are in Floating Mode, licenses can only be released via two methods:

  1. Closing the Goverlan Reach Console process on the Operator machine that has the license in use.
  2. Restarting the Goverlan Reach Server service via the Server Controls tab.

Deregistering Licenses

If new licenses are purchased or if the Onsite Goverlan Licensing Server needs to be migrated, you must first deregister the license pool currently activated on the server.

Via the Goverlan Licensing Server tab, click Deregister Licenses. The Onsite License Deregistration window will appear:

NOTE:

If the Goverlan Reach Server does not have an email client installed, click the second option: “Release, show me and copy the confirmation code to the clipboard.”

After selecting one of the release options, the confirmation code will be shown:

Log on to the my.goverlan.com portal, select the Goverlan Server tab and click the Deregister Licenses:

The my.goverlan.com portal will show a pop up requesting the code acquired from the Onsite Licensing Server from the previous step:

After entering the code, the portal will confirm that the licenses have been successfully released.
