There are several licensing options available with FortiClient EMS. You can use these licenses to manage Windows, macOS, Linux, or Chromebook endpoints. For information on the different license types available, see License types.
There are two ways to activate, upgrade, or renew a FortiClient EMS license:
- Logging into FortiCare. You can log into your FortiCare account to activate EMS using that account. Once an EMS license expire, EMS uses the FortiCare account to obtain a new license file, if available on that account.
- Uploading a license file for activation, upgrade, or renewal. You can upload a license file to EMS. This functions in the same way as in EMS versions prior to 6.2.0.
You must use one of the above methods to activate an EMS license before you can manage any endpoints with EMS.
