Add a Traps License Using the DB Configuration Tool

Using the Database (DB) Configuration Tool, you can manage basic ESM Server settings, including the ability to install a license. You can access the DB Configuration Tool using a Microsoft MS-DOS command prompt that you run as an administrator. The DB Configuration Tool is located in the Server folder on the ESM Server.
All commands you run using the DB Configuration Tool are case sensitive.
  1. Before you begin: Obtain a license from your Palo Alto Networks Account Manager or reseller.
  2. Open a command prompt as an administrator in either of two ways:
    • Select StartAll ProgramsAccessories, right-click Command prompt, and then select Run as administrator.
    • Select Start and in the Start Search box, type cmd but do not press Enter, yet. Then, to open the command prompt as an administrator, press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.
  3. Navigate to the folder that contains the DB Configuration Tool:
    C:\Users\Administrator>cd C:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\Endpoint Security Manager\Server
  4. Upload the new license:
    C:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\Endpoint Security Manager\Server> dbconfig importLicense C:\<PathtoLicenseFile>\<LicenseFilename>.xml
    The DB Configuration Tool uploads the license file. To verify the license using the ESM Console, see Add a Traps License Using the ESM Console.
