When you first install SaltStack Config, it contains a 14-day trial license. To continue using SaltStack Config beyond the 14-day trial, contact a sales representative to purchase a license and then install the key.
Before you start
Installing your license key is the first post-installation step in a series of several steps. Before installing your license key, complete one of the installation scenarios then install your license key. To begin the installation process, see Installation overview.
Which license do I need?
See Which license do you need? for more information about licensing.
Finding your license key
Download your license from My VMware (Customer Connect).
Installing the key
To install the license key on the RaaS node:
- Copy the license file to your RaaS node, such as transferring it using the SCP or SFTP protocols.
- Login as the root user on the RaaS node.
- Unzip the license file. For example:
- Run the following commands:
chown raas:raas raas.license chmod 400 raas.license mv raas.license /etc/raasNote:
If you are not running as the root user and receive an unauthorized user alert, you can add the
sudocommand in front of each command as needed.
- Restart the RaaS service:
systemct1 restart raas
What to do next
After installing your license key, you must complete additional post-installation steps. The next step is to install and configure the Master Plugin. To continue the post-installation process, see Install and configure the Master Plugin.
