Activate a vFabric RabbitMQ License

When you purchase a vFabric RabbitMQ local production license, your account manager gives you one or more serial numbers. This section describes how to activate this local license. You perform this procedure on every computer on which you installed vFabric RabbitMQ server.

  1. If it does not already exist, create a file called vf.rmq-serial-numbers.txt in the directory appropriate to your operating system:

    • Windows: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\vFabric\

    • Linux/Unix: /etc/opt/vmware/vfabric/

    When you install on RHEL using an RPM or on Ubuntu using a Debian package, the installation process creates this file for you.

  2. Paste your serial number into this file and save it.

  3. Ensure that the file is readable by the user who runs vFabric RabbitMQ server.
