Issue Description
How to update the license file if the user cannot log in to the client?
Alarm Information
None.
Handling Process
If the user cannot log in to the client, use the command line to upgrade the license file.
In the following example, the VSM is installed on drive D, and the file name of the new license is LIC_ON118668_ADB4A15B4D7_Secoway_VSM.dat.
1.         Back up the original license file.
 Back up the license file by copying the saved file from the D:\vsm\server\etc\conf\license path to other storage device.
2.         Copy the authorized license file to the VSM server. Directly copying and pasting the license file to the D:\vsm\server\etc\conf\license path is prohibited.
3.         Update the VSM license.
1.         Log in to the operating system of the server.
2.         Run the following command to update the VSM license file:
> updateLicense -file License_file_name

l      In the command, License_file_name indicates the combination of an absolute path and a file name. For example, if the license fine is named license123.dat and stored in d:\, the command to update the VSM license file is >updateLicense -filed:\license123.dat.
l      If illegible characters are displayed, set the environment variable: FILEIO_LOCAL_CHARSET=1.
