      How can I unlock my EXASOL Free Edition ?

      The EXASOL Free Edition is initially limited to 10 GB RAM usage. In order to obtain a new free license file for unlimited main memory please perform the advanced registration http://www.exasol.com/en/download-exasol/ (Option 3: Request a POC).

      After registration you will receive:

      • The license file for unlimited memory usage
      • Instructions how to install the license file
      • Access to the EXASOL user community

      How can I install the new license file ?

      • Open EXAoperation in your browser
      • Software->License
      • Upload you license file
      • Stop database, increase DB Memory, Restart database

      How can I enlarge the disk space ?

      EXASolo is shipped with a default disk size of 200 GiB. These step-by-step instructions show how to enlarge this disk.

      1. Start the EXASolo VM instance at least once. After successful startup and database connectibility, shutdown the instance. Therefore, press the "Shutdown" button in the EXASolo main menu and wait until the VM has been powered off.
      2. Enlarge the EXASolo VM disk image. See the instructions of your VM software (VMWare Player, Virtualbox, KVM, ...) for details.
      3. Restart the EXASolo VM (hint: it will do a further reboot automatically during the boot procedure) and wait for database connectibility.
      4. Browse to EXAoperation (see the EXASolo main menu for the correct URL), login and follow the "EXAStorage" link on the left side.
      5. Follow the links "n0010", "h0000" and press "Enlarge Device".

      Now, the database will be able to use the newly allocated disk space.
