  • At the end of the activation wizard, I am provided with the following message.

  • What additional server-side settings does my administrator need to configure?


This message is indicating that the local NI License Manager could find and connect to the license server, which you entered in the activation wizard, and does not necessarily indicate, that your administrator needs to configure additional settings for you to work.

To check, if you need to contact your administrator, you can check the Product Summary tab or the Network Licenses tab, ​​​​and control, that all software you need is marked as licensed.

Additional Information

Please also check the compatibility between the versions of NI License Manager and NI Volume License Manager. This information can be found in the actual readme of the NI License Manager.
