Applying for and Loading an eSight License

Applying for and Loading an eSight License

The eSight license file is used to control eSight functions and management capabilities. eSight provides a 90-day trial license. After the trial period expires, you need to apply for and load a commercial license.


You must have the Guest permission of the ESDP platform to apply for a commercial license. You can obtain the Guest permission of the ESDP platform after applying for an account at Huawei's official website.


A license file is an authorization file generated by a dedicated encryption tool based on the contract signed between the customer and Huawei and the information about the server where eSight is installed. After obtaining the license file, import it to eSight to activate the permission to use eSight.

  • The license file is not delivered to customers along with the eSight installation disc. Apply for the eSight license based on the project contract number and Equipment Serial Number (ESN) of the server.
  • A license needs to be bound to an ESN of the server. If the ESN changes due to network adapter or server replacement, update the eSight license and import it again. For details, see the eSight License User Guide.
