· A copy of the ESRI concurrent use (floating) license file. This file is usually named with the same number as the concurrent use license dongle (hardware key), which always begins with the numbers ‘371’ and has an extension of .EFL9. If the floating license file cannot be found, request a copy by visiting http://service.esri.com, and clicking ‘request a new license file’ or by contacting ESRI Customer Service at 888-377-4575.
· The ArcGIS license dongle (hardware key). The number printed on the hardware key should match the number of the floating license file. If the hardware key has failed or if a parallel dongle is being used instead of a USB dongle, request a new hardware key from http://service.esri.com.
· ArcGIS installation media, which contains files and programs necessary for installing the License Manager server application.

Do not save the file as .txt, keep the extension .efl9.
