Micro Focus WIE 20.1 I am reinstalling a sensor and it is asking for Activation ID.
Micro Focus WIE 20.1 I am reinstalling a sensor and it is asking for Activation ID which it didn't do on my initial install. I have 3 sensors and 2 keep crashing an that is why I tried to reinstall them. Where can I get the activation ID.
When installing a sensor you are not required to run the GUI portion of the application. The only configuration required is during the install where it prompts for the WIE settings.
As you've experienced, if you try to open the application, which is technically WebInspect, then you will be prompted for a token and license information. Again, this is not required if you are using the install as a sensor.
Additional information and steps can be found in the WIE Installation User Guide - https://www.microfocus.com/documentation/fortify-webinspect-enterprise/2010/WIE_Install_Help_20.1.0/index.htm#12_Install_Sensor.htm%3FTocPath%3DInstalling%2520Fortify%2520WebInspect%2520Enterprise%7C_____7
