Activating the License Key Silently

Activating The License Key Silenty

Question

I would like to activate my license outside of the Content Matrix Console.  Is that possible?

Answer

You can activate your Content Matrix license using PowerShell.  Follow the steps below.

NOTE:  This method can only be used for online activations.

1.Open the Content Matrix PowerShell Console.

2.Run the following cmdlet, which includes specifying the Content Matrix Console Edition for which you want to activate the license.

if (Get-Command Set-MetalogixJobPrerequisites -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue){ Set-MetalogixJobPrerequisites -Value "Content Matrix Console - <Edition_name>" }

 

NOTE:  Valid values for <Edition Name> are SharePoint Edition, eRoom Edition, Public Folder Edition.  If you license covers more than one Edition, it is only necessary to activate one.  The license activation will automatically be applied to any other Edition for which you are licensed.

3.Run the Set-MetalogixLicense cmdlet.  Note that additional parameters are required if a proxy server is used.

Without proxy server:

Set-MetalogixLicense -Key "<license_key>"

 

With proxy server:

Set-MetalogixLicense -Key "<license_key>" -ServerUrl "<proxy_server_IP_addres>" -Port "<proxy_port_number>" -UserName "<user_account>" -Password "<password>"

 

NOTE:  When entering the license key, include hyphens.

License Key Troubleshooting

Question

I have been unable to get Metalogix Content Matrix to recognize my license key. When I copy and paste it into the box, I get a "the specified license key is invalid" error.

Answer

Here are some things to check:

·Make sure that the license covers the product edition.  (For example, if you are licensed for SharePoint Edition and Public Folder Edition and try to activate the license for eRoom Edition, the invalid error will display.)

·Confirm that the license you are installing is for the correct application versions of Metalogix Content Matrix. Contact Quest to verify that it is.

·When performing an offline key activation, make sure to enter the long key in its entirety, including the "=" symbol at the end of it.

·Verify that you have write privileges to the registry. The installer will fail if the registry is locked. In some cases there may be a group policy that is preventing the user from adding the key in the registry, despite the user having the correct permissions.

·Some versions of Windows will automatically block write access to the registry under the user account, even if that account has write access to the registry. In this case you can go to the application installation folder, right click on the application .exe file, and choose 'Run as Administrator'. Then re-enter the license key.

Determining the Status of a Migration Running in the Background

Determining the Status of a Migration Running in the Background

Question

Is there a way to determine what the status is for a migration that is running in the background?

Answer

Yes, this can be done. This is more of a workaround method that should achieve the same results.

For this method to work users must create a new batch file for the job list, and store it in a commonly accessible area on the file system. Give this job list the same name as the one that is, or will be, running in the background. After the main job is running in the background, the new job file can be opened in any users instance of Metalogix Content Matrix. When the new job is opened, users will be given a snapshot view of the job in progress (this is not a real-time update).

For example, let's say that a job file called "Big Job" is running in the background, and another user wants to determine the progress for this job. They would create a new Job file, and call it "Big Job" to match the existing (running) job and then place that file in a commonly accessible area on the file system. Next, they would open this new job file (the copy) in their instance of Metalogix Content Matrix. This should give the user a snapshot view of the original "Big Job" migration, in process, as it continues to run in the background.

Users can use this method to quickly determine how far along the migration is, and it's status.
