Applying License

Once you start Resilio Management Console, it requests license to be installed:


You won't be able to use Resilio Management Console until you apply license. License is a *.syncit file and it can be applied in 2 ways: via UI or manually - by placing the file to a certain location.

Using UI

Once you've received your license file, just save it to your disk, click the "Upload a new license" button and choose the license file in the file picker dialog.

Applying license manually

  • Put your license file to the /data/license folder of your Resilio Management Console installation ("license" folder might need to be created manually). Data folder location:
    Windows: C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\resilio-connect-server\data\license\
    Linux: ${resilio-connect-server}/var/data/
  • Make sure that the file is named "license.syncit"
  • Restart server if it is already running 


If you receive a new license key (with new features, for example), you can activate it using either of the methods. 

Since each license includes a number of server, NASdesktop and mobile units, each agent needs to be counted and approved by Management Console. It's all done automatically if agent is online and connected to MC. If an agent is offline, it'll report "Unlicensed" status until it connects to MC and takes one of the license unit. Also "Unlicensed" status will show up if there are no more available license units for this agent.
