Corner Bowl Server Manager is the bundled version of all 5 Corner Bowl products listed below. If you only need a sub-set of functionality, purchase any stand-alone license then later if you need to add on you can upgrade functionality as well as increase the number of nodes you want to manage.

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

Server Manager 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.
