I have an eval license that expired, and was given a new one to continue the evaluation.

I'm following this doc: http://adaxes.com/help/ActivateLicenseKey/

However, when I look at the properties of the service node the license info is grayed out and I do not have the option to Activate

Is there a manual process that can uninstall the old expired license and get me back on track to activate the new evall license?

Thanks, Steve

Could you, please, post here or send us (support@adaxes.com) a screenshot of the service properties?

Thank you for the provided screenshot. According to it, you are using an old version of Adaxes while the instructions you referenced are only for the latest version of Adaxes. To activate your license key:

  1. Unzip the license.zip archive.
  2. Navigate to the folder where Adaxes service is installed, which is C:\Program Files\Softerra\Adaxes 3\Service by default.
  3. Open the License folder.
  4. Copy your license key file (license.admlic) to the folder.
  5. Restart Adaxes service.

Note: If you have multiple instances of Adaxes service sharing common configuration, activate your license key for each instance.

Hi I'm trying to product a report to show the users with either E3, F3 or F5 licenses. If I add the Adaxes "Microsoft 365 Licenses" attribute directly to the report then ... from the user and show a nice "Microsoft E3" etc value. Is this possible? Thanks

Hi, I try to make a report for our SAM to show all users with a specific license. But I fail to even find anything. I tried, among many ... .DirectorySearcher.AppendFilter("(adm-O365AccountLicenses=POWER_BI_STANDARD)") But I get nothing. Please advice.

We've requested a quote for 2500 licenses and plan on downloading a trial. However, I want to be certain of when the 30-day trial starts ticking...upon the initial download of the software, or only after the downloaded software is installed in our environment?
