SystemWeaver's cryptographically secure shared and named license keys are managed using the swAdmin2 application. The interface is described in The SystemWeaver Admin Utility Interface. This article describes how to add a license key to the server. 


  • An installation of the SystemWeaver Admin client (swAdmin2)
  • Assignment of the Administrator role in the server
  • A SystemWeaver license file to upload if you are adding a license

Adding a New License

SystemWeaver license files are of file type .xml and are delivered as a zipped file. To start with, you'll want to unzip the file and store it in a safe place. If you are adding a license for the first time, simply add it to your system by clicking Add license

A file Open dialog will display and you can then navigate to and select the license file and click Open. To acquire a server license, you must first supply the server ID to your Systemite reseller as described in Obtaining Server ID. Once you have a license added, user accounts can be created

Adding Additional Licenses

If additional licenses have been purchased, e.g., to increase the number of available user accounts, follow the same steps described above. Each license must have a unique id. The swAdmin2 tool will not allow you to add additional licenses with the same License ID. If you are adding a replacement license, see Replacing an Existing License. Adding licenses can be done at any time and does not affect users that are currently logged in to the server.
