Applies to: Centrify DirectControl / DirectManage Suite 2016.1 (5.3.1) and below

How are new / additional Centrify license keys installed when using Centrify Server Suite 2016.1 and below? 

In Centrify Server Suites 2016.1 and below, Centrify licenses are centrally managed via the DirectManage / DirectControl console - license keys are not installed with the agent software of joined workstations.
There are two places where license keys can be entered:
== Method 1:

During the installation of DirectManage / DirectControl the wizard:

User-added image

== Method 2:

If the DirectManage / DirectControl console has already been installed, licenses can be accessed by right-clicking on the main DirectManage / DirectControl node under the Console Root and selecting "Manage Licenses...".

The option to enter or update licenses will be in the Update tab:

If the option to Add a license is greyed out, then the current logged in user does not have permission to add licenses.
Make sure to login with a user who has sufficient privileges.
For further information on how Centrify Licensing works, please see the following KB:
For Centrify Server Suite versions 2017 and newer, please refer to the Centrify Licensing Guide documentation on how to use the new Centrify Licensing Service to add/install new or additional licenses.
