    Hi,

    <b>Install the permanent license key as follows:</b>

    You are in the initial screen of transaction SLICENSE.

    Choose "New Licenses" to enter the license management of the digitally signed license keys.

    Choose "Install".

    In the dialog box that is displayed, specify the file to be loaded from the file system.

    Specify and confirm the license key file.

    You receive a success message that you must confirm. The new license is displayed under "Installed Licenses".

    Note 870871 - License key installation

    Thanks,

    Tanuj.

    Hi,

    Your machine is based on ABAP stack. The license you are trying to install is not right.

    You should apply the ABAP license. LKEY should be 24 character only. The one you have seems to a java license.

    the steps of app,lying license are :

    1) using trabsaction Slicense.

    2) using the command prompt.

    You can use either of the two.

    To get the hardware key slicense -get cdan be used.

    rest others have already mentioned.

    regards and reward with suitable points.

      click on "New Licenses"

      then install...

      choose that file u saved (from the email .. it will be a .txt file.. <sapsid>_webas.txt say like IDE_WEBAS.txt)

      and click ok

      now ur new license will be installed..

      status of ur license will be visible in the windows..

      hope.. this help..

    Hello Tina,

    ECC 6 is a Basis 700 system. As of Basis 700 SAP are issuing digitally encrypted license keys. This means that they are much longer that the traditional 24 character ABAP Licenses.

    As Tanuj correctly stated, you need to use the transaction Slicense to install this license. The older command line options for previous releases will not work

    saplicense -install

    saplicense -show

    The saplicense -get option is still valid however.

    Within Slicense you need to select the New License Button at the top of the screen which will take you to an updated Slicense transaction where you can browse to the file and install the license. The license will show as green once it is installed.

    If the temp license on the system as already expired you will only be able to logon using the sap* user to install the license.

    Regards,

    David

    P.S. Please reward points if this answer is helpful.

    Hello,

    Does this mean that it is not possible any more to install the license automatically thru a script at OS level, after a system copy for example ?

    Thank you

    Best regards,

    Jérôme

    Hello,

    I am looking for a script or a method to install a new ECC6 SAP license (digitally type License).

    As far as I know we can't used now saplicense -install but only SLICENSE.

    I need it , because all our Refresh is done automatically by script.

    Thanks in advanced

    Christian
