Getting Started: Entry Level

This is the place to begin if you are new to the field of software licensing or if you are not familiar with Sentinel RMS. From here you can easily jump to basic licensing topics.

Install Software

Installing the software is the best first step in Getting Started. Installation directions are in the Release Notes.

NOTE   Be sure to install Sentinel RMS using the serial number that Thales provided you. The serial number is on a card shipped with the software. If you need to install multiple copies of Sentinel RMS across your organization, use the same serial number in each installation.

The software can be installed without a serial number but then there is no guarantee of uniqueness of the various files used in your licensing implementation.
