Licensing a GV STRATUS system

Licenses are requested through email and managed through the SabreTooth License Manager, which is installed on the Grass Valley product with the Grass Valley software. The SabreTooth License Manager must be located on the Grass Valley product.

License information is stored in XML files that you can manage just like any other file on your system. Node-locked licenses are unique to the system for which they are requested and cannot be used on any other machine. A floating license can be used on multiple machines, one at a time. You should back up the license text files to a separate drive or as part of a recovery image.

Licenses are based on your system’s unique identifier, which is partially derived from your system’s Media Access Control (MAC) address. If you change your system’s MAC address by performing operations such as changing the System Processor card, you must obtain a new license based on the new MAC address.

To license a GV STRATUS system, one or more licenses must be installed on the GV STRATUS server with role of Common Services. If the system has a server that does proxy encoding, one or more licenses for proxy encoding must be installed on that server as well.
