3.       Open the Licensing dialogue by selecting Help->Licenses

4.       Directory should be set to the Licenses folder in your Terra installation directory where the node locked licenses were placed licenses. For example, “C:\terra\license”. If not, browse to the appropriate folder to set it.

5.       Select OK.

6.       Close the TerraSlave GUI.

7.       After closing the TerraSlave GUI a TSlave.UPF file is generated in the TerraSlave installation folder.

7.       Select OK.

8.       Close the TerraSlave GUI.

9.       After closing the TerraSlave GUI a TSlave.UPF file is generated in the TSlave installation folder.

Additional Comments
Pool license configuration is recommended for TerraSlave since the program may then automatically check out/in licenses as required. This alleviates users from needing to be concerned if a TerraScan license has been checked out for a sufficient time period for the process submitted to TerraSlave to complete.
