you are trying in the wrong place. 

Go to settings -> Licensing -> provide your license master details.

Then the server will connect to the license master.

This is the screen after you type in port 8089 & say next. It won't let you pass the screen asking for source type after I choose "new". Thx

Hi @SamHTexas,

Port 8089 should be open between your Splunk server and License server. Do the telent in splunk server to check the connectivity. If it is not opened check is there any firewall blocking the port
