Product and Software: This article applies to Endpoint Compliance System (ECS) version 3.1 and 4.0.


The Endpoint Compliance System (ECS) license key is bound to the Ethernet 0 MAC address.


If the ECS services are not running, it is likely that the license key is incorrect.


To get the license key information from the appliance, follow these steps:


Step 1: 


a. Login to the Linux shell with root access.

b. Default username is admin.

c. Default password is admin.

d. Type sudo -i to get into the root access shell. 


Step 2: 


Type the following commands on the Linux shell:  bin  DumpKey


Verify that the physical address is the same as the Ethernet 0 MAC address.


You can use the 'ifconfig eth0' command to get the Ethernet 0 MAC address.




1. Enter the root access mode.


> sudo -i
