The method described here is a quick and easy way to deploy a license on a single device which has not yet been configured by the UMS. First, you get your license file from a Product Pack. Then, you use the device's Setup Assistant to deploy it on the device either via HTTP download, FTP, or from a USB memory stick.

Getting the License File from the IGEL Licensing Portal

    The order details are shown.

  2. Open the management dialog for your Product Pack.

  3. Click Add hardware.

    The dialog for adding hardware opens.
