Spotlight is supplied with a time-limited trial key so you can test the product. When the trial key expires Spotlight reverts to a preview mode with severely limited access. When you enter a valid license key and site message you are licensed to use Spotlight Enterprise.

A purchased commercial license may be applied to a single Spotlight Diagnostic Server deployment or a federation of Spotlight Diagnostic Server. The license and the procedure for entering the license is the same.

  1. Click Help | About.
  2. Ensure Product Information is to the front.
  3. Click view/change product license.
  4. Enter the License Key and Site Message.
