Copying an Installed License from Another Nexus Repository Instance

These instructions for copying an installed license from another Nexus Repository instance only apply to Linux and MacOS environments; it does not apply to Windows environments.

Once installed, the Nexus Repository license is stored in the Java user preferences store directory for the user that owns the Nexus Repository process. It is possible to move an already installed license from a licensed Nexus Repository instance to another unlicense instance since you can install licenses on multiple servers.

By default, you will find the product license in the home directory of the user running Nexus Repository at this location:


You can install the license using a supported method for one process user and then copy the file to a new host or different user account. Then, you will have an installed license for both process users.
