If you are installing the 5nine product license on the product version that was released before June 1, 2017 (except for the 5nine Manager Datacenter product) please make sure to upgrade to the latest version of your 5nine product for the automatic activation of your license.

For the 5nine Manager Datacenter license activation, following address should be accessible for the automatic activation on TCP port 8443 -

In the event that your product has not been upgraded to the latest version, please perform the following steps to resolve the issue:

1. Email 5nine Support ( the validation.dat file for the 5nine Manager Datacenter product and activation.dat file for all other products (these files are located in the folder for each of the product's Management Servers listed below) and we will activate the license and email it back to you for installation:
