===Obtain a License File===
In addition to these files, a valid license file for the T-VEC tools is required to complete the setup. License files are obtained from T-VEC support. They are generated based on the license server's hostid which is typically it's ethernet (MAC) address. Send the server name and ethernet address to T-VEC Support to obtain a license file. See [[License_Management#Obtaining_Licenses]] for information on obtaining a license file for the license server.
