A colleague asked me this question earlier today:

How do I add additional licenses to an already running EV server?

Well, licensing isn’t something that I normally have to do deal with … All my lab images use a non-expiring license, for all components, which I just point at when doing the initial setup, and all usually ends up “well”.  I’ve never had to resolve the issue where I have (for example) some mailbox archiving licenses during installation, and then need to add PST licenses.

Anyway, the solution is quite simple:

  • You put the new .SLF file in the Enterprise Vault installation folder, and
  • Restart the Admin Service (which will likely restart all of the EV services)
  • Monitor DTRACE of the Admin Service (if you really want to) to see what is now licensed.

And that’s it.

I also, later on, found the following technote which reconfirms my steps :-
