  4. Click Upgrade button.


Note: VQManager stops monitoring the concurrent calls / IP Phones / Endpoints beyond the license limit. The same is displayed as an error message in the web client.


Distributed Edition:

In Distributed Edition, you have to apply the license file only on the Central Server. The Probes automatically download the license and upgrade themselves. To apply the license:

  3. Click Browse button to upload the license.

Once you apply the license on the Central Server, you have to allocate the license for each Probe. For example, you have 10 Probes installed and have purchased 100 concurrent call license. After applying the license on the Central Server, you have to specify the concurrent call count for each probe. Overall the sum should not exceed 100. At the same time, if the concurrent calls monitored by a Probe exceeds the license limit updated for that Probe in the Central server, then that particular Probe stops monitoring the calls exceeding the limit. The same is displayed as an error message in the web client.


To allocate the license count for the Probes:

  1. Go to Admin --> Probes.

  2. Click on the Edit icon corresponding to the Probe to which you want to allocate the license count.

Note: In case, if any Probe server is down when you distribute the license count, the same will be synchronized to that Probe server when the Central server is able to communicate with it.

After allocating the licenses to the Probe, you can go back to the License page in the Central Server web client, to view the remaining licenses available. The following image shows the license page of the Central Server with  the 'Number of Concurrent Calls Licensed' and 'Number of Concurrent Calls distributed' to the Probes.
