Node Activation

Since hlm-0.18.0 HILSTER’s license server can be used for remote activation.

To activate you only need one or more activation keys that HILSTER sent you.

An activation key consists of 16 upper case letters in 4 groups concatenated by dashes.

$ hlm activate ABCD-EFGH-IJKL-MNOP

You can also activate more then one activation key at a time.


Activation creates a license that is stored locally.

To renew the licenses once activated simply run

$ hlm renew

When you are behind a proxy you have to set the environment variable https_proxy like in the installation process.
