Obtain and activate your TEXTML Server license

Your TEXTML Server license must be activated before you can start TEXTML Server.

Note: This procedure is only necessary the first time you install TEXTML Server. Additional TEXTML Server instances you create for clusters or TEXTML Server upgrades will not require you to re-activate your license.

To obtain and activate your license:

  1. On the Linux machine, open the folder for your TEXTML Server instance:
    For example:
    cd /opt/ixiasoft/textmlserver/ts01
  2. Invoke the DisplayServerId command:
    The Server ID is displayed.
  3. Copy the server ID.
  4. Open an email and in the To space, enter: Support-DITA@ixiasoft.com.
  5. Enter a Subject and body text.
    For example:
    • Subject: license
    • Text: Please send me my TEXTML Server license.
      Note: Please include additional information that will help IXIASOFT identify this server, such as the server name, whether the server is used for test, deployment, or production, etc.
  6. Paste the server ID into the body of the email, and press Send.
  7. When you receive an email reply with your license ID, save the attached license file (IxiaLicense.ilf) to the license folder:
    Note: The license file *must* have the .ilf extension. Some email programs add the .txt extension to the file. This will prevent TEXTML Server from starting.
Your TEXTML Server is now licensed and ready to be started.
