Procedure

  1. Click the Upload License tab. The MAC Address and License status fields are automatically populated.
    Note: After you update an NIEx9 with the NAE/NIE Update Tool, the Generic integration field shows NOT AUTHORIZED because the driver file was deleted during the update. This is normal operation.
  2. Click Upload. The uploaded license is placed into the working folder.
    Figure 1. Upload License Tab

  3. Back up the NIEx9 license file before executing any operation with the NAE/NIE Update Tool. Perform this operation at the first run of the NIEx9 and before formatting the NIEx9 using the NAE/NIE Update Tool. When you use the NAE/NIE Update Tool, the license file is deleted and cannot be recovered.
