Each Exinda appliance must be licensed to operate. The license key is applied to the appliance and specifies how the appliance should operate. The license key is automatically fetched from the Exinda license server and is installed on first boot-up (DNS should be configured and Exinda should be able to connect to internet).There are three ways to see the license information: -
- On the WebUI go to Dashboad ?System ?License Model (Click on the Highlighted section).
On the WebUI go to Configuration? System ? Basic Install Wizard ?Step 5 Licensing.
This will give information about what all license features are enabled on the box. Please see the below screenshot for reference.
- Go to Configuration ? System ? Setup ? License

Method No 3 also provides information about all the previous and current installed license keys. Check the Valid and Active columns to understand which licenses are currently applied. The appliance will use the license that provides the highest specification limits.
