NCache 4.6 - Online Documentation

Activate NCache Purchased License

 
This PowerShell script lets you activate NCache license on remote machines. It makes your administrative tasks easy when you have many servers to activate because you do not have to manually activate the license on each server.
 
You should have internet access on all the machines where you want to activate NCache through the PowerShell script. Internally, this script uses command line tool NActivate.exe of NCache. You must have to provide valid admin user ID and password that has the permissions to execute commands on remote machine.
 
You should find the UninstallNCache .ps1 script at the NCache installation path in the integration folder:
%INSTALLPATH%/NCache/Integration/PowerShell/ ActivateNCache.ps1
 
PS C:/Users>./ ActivateNCache.ps1 /k  key /f  first-name /l  last-name /email  email-address /uid server-username /pwd server-password [ options[...] ].
