License Manager Workaround

SQL Diagnostic Manager version 10.0 is designed to integrate with License Manager 2.0, allowing for a self-service licensing model.  However, an issue in the Generate License Keys link of the License Keys window fails to direct to License Manager.  To solve this issue follow the steps below:

To update the License Manager configuration file:

  1. Access the configuration file at: C:\Program Files\Idera\Idera SQL diagnostic manager\License Manager.
     
  2. Right-click the License Manager Utility.exe.config file to open.

  3. Update the tags under appSettings to:  <add key="ServiceUrl" value="https://licensemanager.idera.com/LMService/Service.svc/"/> and <add key="ForgotPasswordUrl" value="http://idera.force.com/apex/PortalForgotPassword"/>.

  4.   Save and exit.
