License Not Installed or Activated
If you fail to install or activate your ZCS server license, the following scenarios describe how your ZCS server will be impacted.
*
License is not installed. If a license is not installed, the ZCS defaults to single user mode where all features limited by license are limited to one user.
*
License is not valid. If the license file is forged or could not be validated for other reasons, the ZCS defaults to single user mode.
*
License is not activated. A license activation grace period is 10 days. If for some reason the license is never activated, the ZCS defaults to single user mode.
*
License is in future. If the license starting date is still in the future, the ZCS defaults to single user mode.
*
License is in grace period. If the license ending date has passed and is within the 30 day grace period, all features limited by license are still enabled, but administrators may see license renewal prompts.
*
License expired. If the license ending date has passed and the 30 day grace period expired, the ZCS server defaults to the feature set of the Open Source Edition.
