SMS Certificate Number (CERT)
The SMS serial number or Certificate Number (CERT) is a sixteen digit number (E.g. SVR-XX-XXXX-XXXX) that identifies the SMS appliance to TippingPoint support and the Threat Management Center (TMC) website. The CERT number can be located;
- From the SMS client, navigate to Admin->Server Properties->Management tab
- On the product label attached to the SMS server
- Entering the "get sys" CLI command.
SMS License Key
The SMS License Key is a 32 digit number (E.g. XXX-XXXX-XX-XXXXX-XX-XXXXX-XXX-X) that grants your SMS server authority to manage a specific number of TippingPoint security devices. By default the SMS product includes a default license key that allows management of up to 25 devices. If you need to manage more than 25 devices, you must purchase a new license and use it to upgrade the key. Only devices managed by the SMS server count against the license key. If you unmanage or delete a device, it no longer counts against your SMS license. The SMS License Key is displayed as a string of X characters (default) or as alpha numeric characters if the key has been upgraded. This panel also indicates the number of devices that the license key allows to be managed and the number of devices the SMS is currently managing.
You can view the License Key by:
- From the SMS client, navigate to Admin->General->SMS License Key
- Entering the "get license" CLI command.
