Activate your license using an Activation ID

The easiest way to install the Portworx Enterprise license, is via Activation ID (contact Portworx for getting Activation ID).

Run the following command on your Portworx node:

pxctl license activate <activation-id>

The license activation process requires an active internet connection from the Portworx nodes to the license server. The activation process automatically registers the cluster UUID, and generates and installs the license on the cluster. Upon activating the license on one Portworx node, all the remaining Portworx nodes automatically update to the new license.

NOTE: You can also run the pxctl license activate command inside a pod as follows:

 PX_POD=$(kubectl get pods -l name=portworx -n kube-system -o jsonpath='{.items[0]}')
 kubectl exec $PX_POD -n kube-system -- /opt/pwx/bin/pxctl license activate <activation-id>
