Upgrading the License

It is possible to upgrade from your silo license to one with a higher capacity (e.g., 1 TB to 10 TB). A replacement license key will be required. Perform the following steps to upgrade your license:

  1. Log in to the LCE interface (https://<ipaddress or hostname>:8836).

  2. On the top navigation bar, click Configuration.

    The Configuration page appears, displaying the Basic section.

  3. On the left pane, click Feed Settings.

    The Feed Settings section appears.

  4. In the Activation Code box, type your new activation code, and then click the Apply button.

  5. At the bottom of the Feed Settings section, click the Update button.

    Note: The number of silos can indicate the type of license in use. For example, 103 silos indicate a 1 TB license, 512 silos indicate a 5 TB license, and 1024 silos indicate a 10 TB license, when the maximum silos for a license are used.

The total number of silos along with how many silos have been used is displayed in the Health and Status section under the Advanced section of the LCE GUI as shown below.

Note: Navigate to Health and Status, and select Plugins to verify the Activation status is Licensed, and the Feed Expiration does not show Expired.
