Configuring Activation Server Settings

Before deploying the Activation Server, you must first configure the settings in the following XML-based configuration file:

 

\ACTIVATIONSERVER\PRECOMPILEDWEB\MANAGER\WEB.CONFIG

 

Use a text editor to open the file. You must enter the Key ID and Key ID Sum of your ElecKey system. You can change your username and password. Below is an example.

 

<configuration>

<appSettings>

<add key="UserName" value="Administrator"/>

<add key="Password" value="Administrator"/>

<!-- SHA-512 User Name hash -->

<add key="HUserName" value=""/>

<!-- SHA-512 Password hash -->

<add key="HPassword" value=""/>

<add key="KeyID" value="1111111111"/>

<add key="KeyIDSum" value="4183999173"/>

</appSettings>

</configuration>

 

Instead of storing the username and password in plain text, for extra security, you can enter them in SHA-512 encoding (SHA hash with 512 bits) under the key HUserName and HPassword, respectively. Below is an example of the username and password: Administrator entered in SHA-512 hash.

 

<configuration>

<appSettings>

<add key="UserName" value=""/>

<add key="Password" value=""/>

<!-- SHA-512 User Name hash -->

<add key="HUserName" value="df09aec85d056853f2d9da9c8627db3507f3982 0594efe303980ac45339f80e2e1430f0f7e639635e7f6b12d185367a3938eaa7b0f2f84cbd857a7375617affc"/>

<!-- SHA-512 Password hash -->

<add key="HPassword" value="df09aec85d056853f2d9da9c8627db3507f3982 0594efe303980ac45339f80e2e1430f0f7e639635e7f6b12d185367a3938eaa7b0f2f84cbd857a7375617affc"/>

<add key="KeyID" value="1111111111"/>

<add key="KeyIDSum" value="4183999173"/>

</appSettings>

</configuration>

 

noteNOTE: You can use the provided Activation Server utility (available in \ActivationServer\Util\ASUtil.exe) to generate the SHA-512 hash of your username and password for HUserName and HPassword.
