Central License File Management

Central License File Share

License file management is easy with uberAgent. All you have to do is set up a file share with read permissions for computer accounts, drop your uberAgent license file(s) there and configure the share path in uberAgent’s configuration option LicenseFilePath. Endpoints periodically check LicenseFilePath for new licenses. If any are found that are not yet cached locally, the new license files are copied to the local license cache directory in %ProgramData%\vast limits\uberAgent\License cache (Windows) or in /Library/Application Support/uberAgent/License Cache (macOS) respectively.

Storing uberAgent’s License in Azure Files

uberAgent can also validate a license file stored in an Azure Files share. Our knowledge base article describes the necessary steps to set this up.

Availability Requirements

There is no need for the configured license file path to be available all of the time. Endpoints always use the local license cache for license validation.

Alternative: Local License Storage

Of course, there is no requirement to set up a central license file path. You can also distribute the license file to each endpoint. If the license file path is not specified uberAgent falls back to the installation directory (Windows) or to /Library/Application Support/uberAgent (macOS).
