To configure licensing replication on the local server
On the server you want to configure, open Choose Licensing Mode.
Under Replication Frequency, specify the desired interval for replicating licensing information to the site license server:
To manually specify a time for daily replication on this server, click Start At, and then enter a time.
Click Start Every, and then enter the interval at which the system should stagger the start times if multiple servers are set to this option.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
To open a Control Panel item, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon. In this case, click Licensing.
If you select Start At under Replication Frequency and multiple servers replicate to the site license server, you must vary the starting times on each server to balance the load. Replication might not start until 15 minutes after the specified time.
The default is Start Every with a 24-hour interval. You can change this to an interval from one to 72 hours.
This procedure can also be performed remotely with the Licensing administrative tool. For more information, click Related Topics.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
