This command requires you to pass in a license file to --license.

Verify the target node is running. The set-license command cannot be run on a stopped node.

This command is interactive unless you enable non-interactive mode through the flag --yes. In addition, if you have more than one node running on a host, you must also set --memsql-id for non-interactive mode.

The memsqlctl set-license command is equivalent to the sdb-admin set-license command.


$ sudo memsqlctl set-license --license <base64-encoded license>
memsqlctl will perform the following actions on the local node on port 3306:
  · Run `SET LICENSE = '<base64-encoded license>'`
