Software Installation: Licensing

Requesting a License Code

There are three types of licenses that you can request - Enterprise, Developer or Trial. Consult the Product Editions documentation for information about the versions of Omnidex. Servers that have never been previously licensed are eligible for an automatic 14-day Trial license, while all other license requests will be promptly reviewed by DISC's Licensing Department. The approach for requesting a license is the same in all cases.

You can request a license code for Omnidex by issuing the “REQUEST LICENSE” command in the program OdxSQL as shown below. This command will gather information about your computer and send us a request for a license code. The syntax of the REQUEST LICENSE command is:


This command will prompt for contact information and will collect information about your server. Omnidex will then gather information about the system that you would like to license and prepare the full licensing request. This information will be displayed on the screen, and you will be asked for permission to encrypt and send this information to DISC's licensing server. If access to the Internet is available, it will contact the licensing server at DISC to request a license. If the Internet is not available, it will display information that can be sent to DISC via email.
