So about the qb.lic file...if I understand correctly from the comment above, this file is NOT automatically created once the supervisor is loaded, it has to be created under %systemroot% and license contents copied and pasted into it?  I've installed the supervisor and the file doesn't exist on c:\windows... qb.conf is there, but the license file isn't.

Hey Rsad,

     I've split the topic so that others can easily follow this thread. 

     Yes you are correct in that the installer does "not" create a qb.lic file.  This is sent to you during either an evaluation or after purchasing the software.  Under windows, it is located here:

          C:\windows\qb.lic or C:\winnt\qb.lic

     Under linux and osx it is located here:

         /etc/qb.lic


     The supervisor by default for testing purposes only provides 2 licenses.  This is not 'added' to your license count, but provided for quick testing and also for mini development farm purposes.

     Thanks,
          Anthony

Hi, how do I save my qb.lic to /etc/qb.lic

I tried in OSX Terminal
cp /Applications/pfx/qube/etc/qb.lic /etc (which is where I saved my file)

and it says
cp: /etc/qb.lic: Permission denied

But I have admin rights.

Whats the best way to get that file in the root /etc directory, you can't get to it with finder.

Thanks

Hey Starrshaw,

    Actually even as an admin, you don't normally have permission to copy files into /etc.  (This is because OSX doesn't give true root permissions even to Admin accounts)

    What you need to do with your "cp" command is add "sudo" in front of it.  This authorizes he command to do what you want:

    sudo cp /location/of/my/qb.lic /etc

    It will ask for a password.  Use your's
