How to update the license propely?

Dear all,

The question might look a little bit self-explaining, but I had some difficulties last year, so I want to ask for some "best practices" before I have to struggle with the same problems again.


My environment is the following:

  • Windows Server 2012
  • ArcGIS Server 10.3.1
  • GeoEvent Processor 10.3.1
  • Enterprise Geodatabase (postgreSQL) on the same machine as ArcGIS Server/GeoEvent Extension


The current licenses will expire on the 29th of September, but I have already a new license-file for the next year.

For the license-update process, I would perform the following steps:

Using the license-file and the ArcGIS Administrator I'll authorize my ArcGIS Server instance including the GeoEvent Processor.


Now, coming to the point, which ended in some problems last year, what I have to do with my enterprise geodatabase? If I remember correctly, I have to inject the license file in my database, too?! Is this done automatically?

And what's about my GeoDatabase-Connection from my personal computer to the enterprise geodatabase? Do I have to establish a new connection using a "new generated" keycodes file?


Would be great to get some feedback!

All the best,
