There are two different methods provided by Sentinel LM to install a license key -- a command line utility (lslic.exe) and a Windows License Manager Administration utility (wlmadmin.exe).  Both of these utilities are located in the Worksoft Certify Site Prep.zip file included in the Worksoft Certify installation package in the .\SitePrep\LicenseServer\AdminTools folder.  The instructions for using the command line utility are located in the “To install your license key:” section of the Certify Enterprise Installation Guide. 

Here are the instructions for using the Sentinel LM License Manager Administration utility (wlmadmin.exe) to install the license key:  

To use wlmadmin.exe to install a license key …

1.       Unzip the Worksoft Certify Site Prep.zip file and navigate to the .\SitePrep\LicenseServer\AdminTools folder.

2.       Start wlmadmin.exe and navigate to the server that is hosting the Worksoft Certify license in the tree view on the left.  (NOTE: This might be in either the Defined Servers or Subnet Servers nodes depending on where your Sentinel server is set up in your network.)

3.       Right-click on the server name in the list and choose “Add Feature -> From a File -> To Server and its File” from the popup menu.

4.       Select the License file from the Open File dialog and click the Open button.

The license key will be installed.

Additional Information:

There are two options to install a license key "From a File", as shown above in the first image.

#1. To Server
#2. To Server and its File

Option #1 adds license keys to the memory of the active license server process.
If the license server is rebooted, the license keys will no longer be available because the memory of the license server is purged when the license server restarts.
 
Option #2 adds license keys to the memory of the active license server process and also writes the license keys into the local license key file on the license server.
If the license server is rebooted, the license keys will be automatically loaded into memory when the license server process reads the local license key file at startup.
 
It is recommended that option #2 be used, as instructed above, to ensure that your Certify license keys are automatically reloaded into the active license server process every time the server reboots.
