Manage Licenses

Identify Product
Enter Unique Product Identifier:


  • You may use a serial number, license request key (activation code) or token as the product identifier.
  • Stingray Upgrade: you must enter a token, not the serial number, to redeem your license.

Helpful Hints:

  • Finding Your License Request Key (Activation Code)
    • The license request key is the same as the activation code
    • The license request key (activation code) generates the appliance’s licenses. After installing the software on your Riverbed appliance, generate a license request key (activation code) from the management console or command line by using an available token.
    • You can view your available tokens on your Riverbed Support account, under the Tokens page.
  • Finding Your Serial Number
    You can find the serial number of your Riverbed appliance in several ways:
    • For Steelhead appliances, you can find the serial number in the Support tab of the Management Console Web Interface (in 4.1 and earlier, this is the Help tab). From the command line, you can use the show info command to display the serial number. The serial number is physically labeled on the box of the appliance as well as the appliance chassis, similar to the image below.
    • For Cascade appliances, you can find the serial number from the user interface in the Help > About area.
