You can add licenses at the time of Control Compliance Suite (CCS) installation or at a later stage from the Licenses view of the CCS console. You must provide the CCS core license during installation. The CCS core license, CCS_Core.slf, is required for installing the CCS Manager.
You must procure appropriate licenses to activate different features or components of CCS. Licenses are of the following types:
This type of license is consumed per unit. The License View shows the number of units that are consumed per license for the CCS feature or component.
This type of license enables a feature but is not consumed in units. The License View displays a non-metered license as N/A.
You cannot open the CCS Console if the core license expires. The core license can be renewed from the stand-alone utility Symantec.CSM.LicenseUtil.exe that is stored in the following location:
<install directory>\CCS\Reporting and Analytics\Directory Support Service\
The CCS Console does not display any expired component's features. The system displays a message to indicate that a license has expired.
