Novell Licensing Services Administration Guide

Novell® Licensing Services (NLS) that ships with NetWare® 6 supports the User Access License (UAL) model. User objects gain access to network services by connecting to the network instead of to servers. These User objects receive a permanent license unit that allows them to access network services at any time and from any workstation attached to the network.

For information on NLS concepts and how NLS works, see Understanding Novell Licensing Services.

For information on the User Access Model, see User Access Licensing for NetWare.

When you install or upgrade to NetWare, the server installation software automatically installs NLS, but not the license certificates. You must install the license certificates either during the installation or at a later time.

For information on installing or upgrading NLS, see Installing Novell Licensing Services.

License certificates enable users to access network resources, including NetWare servers. Typically, the server installation program installs license certificates for NetWare and other selected NLS-enabled products. You can use Novell iManager, Novell's browser-based management tool, to install additional license certificates and to manage license units for NLS-enabled products. You can also create metered certificates and then use ZENworksTM to manage applications that are not NLS-enabled.

To set up and configure Novell iManager to install and maintain licensing, see Novell iManager Administration Guide for more information.
