B.08.20 / Release Notes / Installation

Eloquence B.08.20 License keys

  Eloquence B.08.20 requires a license key version B.08.20 or above. For a new Eloquence installation or when upgrading from a previous Eloquence version a new license key must be obtained to use the Eloquence server components.

The basic FTS functionality is included in the base product. To use enhanced FTS indexing functionality, an additional FTS or FTC license key is required.

The installation program on HP-UX and Windows by default grants a temporary license valid for 30 days, if Eloquence B.08.20 is installed for the first time on a system. This option may be disabled in the HP-UX swinstall dialog or the Windows installer "Custom Setup" dialog, if a temporary license is not needed.

To request a permanent license key, please use the form included with the delivery or use the license request form on the Eloquence web site at: http://eloquence.marxmeier.com/license/

The Eloquence software id (SWID) necessary to request a license key may be obtained using the gethwid utility. The installed license keys may be verified using the chklic utility.

It is necessary to install Eloquence to use these utilities. They are located in the Eloquence etc installation subdirectory, by default:

HP-UX and Linux
32-bit Windows
C:\Program Files\Eloquence\8.2\etc\gethwid
C:\Program Files\Eloquence\8.2\etc\chklic
64-bit Windows
C:\Program Files (x86)\Eloquence\8.2\etc\gethwid
C:\Program Files (x86)\Eloquence\8.2\etc\chklic

By default, the gethwid utility only returns a primary SWID. By specifying the -a option all applicable SWID values are output.

For example:



  /opt/eloquence/8.2/etc/gethwid -a

On 64-bit Windows:

  C:\> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Eloquence\8.2\etc\gethwid.exe"
Any license keys must be added to the license file manually. It is recommended to comment out (or delete) any previous license keys when adding the new B.08.20 license key(s) to the license file.

HP-UX and Linux
32-bit Windows
C:\Program Files\Eloquence\8.2\etc\license
64-bit Windows
C:\Program Files (x86)\Eloquence\8.2\etc\license
The chklic utility may be used to verify the license file.

A copy of the default license key template file is also available. This template file also includes the license key for the Eloquence Personal Edition license.

HP-UX and Linux
32-bit Windows
C:\Program Files\Eloquence\8.2\etc\license.sam
64-bit Windows
C:\Program Files (x86)\Eloquence\8.2\etc\license.sam
When editing the license file on Windows, please pay attention to not modify the template file by accident, which may happen when your Windows Explorer folder settings suppress the display of known file extensions (like .sam) by default.

Please notice:

  • The Eloquence B.08.20 gethwid utility may return a different SWID on some HP-UX systems when using partitions (npar/vpar) compared to Eloquence releases before B.08.10. In this case the SWID value starts with a 'P'. The previous SWID is still valid, though.
  • When requesting an updated license key please provide the previous SWID (or uname -i output) in addition to the new 'P' SWID.

Personal Edition

The default license file includes a license key for the Eloquence Personal Edition, which provides a fully functional version of the Eloquence product (not time-limited) for non-commercial usage, but restricted to a maximum of 2 concurrent users and a database size of 50 MB. It does include a license for the TurboIMAGE compatibility but does not include the database server replication or data encryption options.
