  2. Navigate to Main Menu : Server Setup : Licensing
  3. On that page you will see data that looks like this:  
Your hardware license key is: fcb5b08630c261403c39b82037ef 
Licensed Products: 
  • Cablecast
  • Carousel, 100 Channels

If this is the first time you are licensing the system, you will just see the hardware ID and nothing more. 

If you are requesting additional licenses (as for a system expansion) please copy all information listed.

Additional Information

The hardware license key is a unique number that identifies your server.  It is used to generate a cryptographic license key that unlocks functionality such as the number of players that may connect to a Carousel server.
