Activating a Redgate Monitor trial license

Redgate Monitor trial licenses aren't compatible with the new licensing server and can only be applied if the trial license is the only license being used. This means that if you have already purchased and activated a Redgate Monitor or SQL Toolbelt license you will need to remove this license before applying your trial license.

To apply a Redgate Monitor trial key you will need to go to Configuration > Licensing, then click the option "Activate a Perpetual license":

Enter the serial key here:

And select Activate.

You will be shown when the activation has been successful with a blue banner indicating the time left on the trial:


A Redgate Monitor trial license will not show up on your configuration page. You will not see the license number or how many servers the license covers. You may notice that your configuration page reads Number of licenses '0'.


Now you can start adding your servers. See, Adding servers for monitoring

If after adding your servers, you find Redgate Monitor does not begin monitoring or does not behave as anticipated, please raise a support ticket and include your log file

Offline activation

If you don't have an internet connection you will need to activate your trial license manually.
