anka.pkg and install it on mac harwdare.
Activate license using
sudo anka license command to activate the license on each machine with the activation key. The machines should be connected to the internet at the time of activation either directly or through proxy.

sudo -E anka license activate ... to pick up the environment variables.

Anka licenses are issued for yearly license subscription which includes updates, upgrades and standard support. They can be purchased for a single year or multiple years.
This feature is implemented to eliminate the need for users to manually reactivate license on the Anka nodes upon renewal of their yearly licenses. Auto extension logic in anka licensing executes once every day and if days to expiration is > 30 days, then no action is taken. If the license is expired, then no action is taken. If days to expiration is < 30 days, then the licensing on the node tries to reactive license with updated license expiration date from the backend licensing service.
First, stop all the running or suspended VMs. Then, remove the old license and activate with the commercial activation key.
sudo anka license remove sudo anka license activate <newactivation key>
Remove the license from the machine using the below described command.
sudo anka license remove Are you sure you want to remove current license? [y/N]: y License is removed. To activate with the same activation key on another machine, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your activation key and fulfillment ID 2727000039
