Required. When ordering upgrade options, you no longer need to supply the instrument's Host ID and Serial number. You will supply the model number, upgrade option and quantity. An entitlement certificate will be sent and can also be directly e-mailed from Keysight. The entitlement certificate can then be redeemed via the Keysight website for the license keys for the upgrade options. When redeeming the entitlement certificate via the website, you will at that time supply the serial numbers and host IDs of the instruments for which you are obtaining license keys.
