Here is a procedure to switch from component-based to capacity based licensing.


Prerequisite

Each NAM Probe that is attached to your NAM server requires a separate capacity license. Prior re-configuring NAM to use these licenses make sure you have all the capacity licenses you need generated in eServices with the proper NAM Probe capacity (5 or 20 Gbps), with the set of required decodes, with or without SSL support.


1. [Optional] If you still use DLM (like in DC RUM 2017 version), you need first to remove the existing license from DLM so the CAS/NAM server will not attempt to send this license again to the NAM Probe.

2. Open NAM Console, navigate to NAM server, open configuration and *Disable* all NAM Probes that are associated with it as Data sources. Publish configuration

3. Remove existing (component) license from each AMD/NAM Probe(s)

Connect remotely to NAM Probe (via SSH to AMD and perform these actions:

A. Stop NAM Probe services:

ndstop

B. Remove existing license file(s):

rm -f /usr/adlex/config/*.key

4. Change license model on NAM Probe to Capacity.

Edit

/usr/adlex/config/rtm.config

and change license.type setting to

license.type=2

6. Restart NAM Probe services

ndstart

Now repeat steps 3-6 on the other NAM Probe(s).

7. Go back to NAM Server settings in Console, to Data Sources and re-enable the NAM Probes in there.

Publish configuration

8. Install and activate the Capacity licenses to all these NAM Probes.

Each NAM Probe requires a separate capacity license.

Open Licensing in NAM Console and you shall see all the NAM Probes listed there, but without the capacity licenses.

Install capacity licenses to these NAM Probes now.

9. Verify if the license status on each NAM Probe.

Connect remotely to NAM Probe (via SSH to AMD, launch rcon console and run show licenses command

The output should look like this:

[root@amd1902 config]# rcon
Dynatrace NAM Probe Console, ver. 19.0.2.92 Linux
Log file: /var/log/adlex/rcon.log
>$ show licenses
