Corner Bowl Server Manager is a must to have! Server Manager is really simple to use. In a short time I managed to deploy and start monitoring the first servers. I use the software every day and the alerts help me keep track, especially via email, of all the events that are critical on my network such as activities on AD, new machines on the network, RDP sessions etc.

Corner Bowl Software is sold in node packs. Each unique IP address or hostname that is monitored, scanned or managed by the software is a node.

Corner Bowl Software can be installed on a single host or up to as many hosts as nodes purchased.

For example, a 100 node license would enable an IT professional to install the software on 3 servers with one installation monitoring 50 servers and the other two installations monitoring 25 workstations each for a total of 100 nodes.

After you purchase a license, you have the option through this website or your reseller to upgrade your existing license with more nodes.

Once you have purchased a license, a license key will be emailed to you. If you purchase through a reseller, a claim link will be emailed to you enabling you to retrieve your key from this website. Once you have your key you will register online through the software's management console. If you are installing this software on an Air-Gapped network, you will generate license key files through this website where you will also find detailed instructions on how to apply your Air-Gapped key files.
