Set the license on a node.


Set the license on a node.

memsql-admin set-license runs memsqlctl set-license on a host where the target node is located. If the target node isn't specified, the command will be run for the Master Aggregator node.

The memsql-admin set-license command must be provided with a valid license as an argument on the command line with the --license flag, or in the MEMSQL_LICENSE environment variable, or in a text file where the filename and its path are passed as a single argument with the --file-path flag.

Example usages:

	memsql-admin set-license --memsql-id 8CE412C7EF --license AAAAAAa/Aaa/AA==

	memsql-admin set-license --license AAAAAAa/Aaa/AA==

	memsql-admin set-license --file-path /tmp/memsql-license

	memsql-admin set-license --file-path ../license.txt
