For each database you have installed, you need to license the system accordingly. For example, if the system is being run in a centralised fashion with one headoffice database, we therefore need to install a single licence key. For a distributed system where there is a backoffice database at each outlet, we will need to install a license key for each outlet database.
Note: In a distributed system you do not need to install a license for the headoffice server.
The licence support in TillIncoming means you will not be able to process transactions if you exceed the Store count limit. Once you have met the licence limit, if you click New you will be shown a warning that you cannot add more stores and you can choose to continue or not. Thereafter, if you try to save a new entry with Store type you will be shown an error message. Non-licenced locations such as warehouses can be added as location types when the licence has met the limit of the store licence count.
Non-licenced locations such as warehouses can be added as location types when the licence has met the limit of the store licence count.
The licence check has been enhanced such that the TillIncomingService that processes the transactions from the POS must match the version of MerchantCentralServer so if you are running v5.25 MCS you need to be running v5.25 TillIncomingService. The check is performed on initial load of TillIncomingService and then every hour.
