Use multiple license files simultaneously for Vista 5

Use multiple license files simultaneously for Vista 5

Issue

How can multiple licenses work simultaneously in Vista 5?

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • Vista 5 Licensing
  • LMTools

Cause

Licenses may have been purchased separately and either contain different features, or additional seats. The license server can read multiple licenses and serve them up appropriately.

Resolution

Option 1 - Use multiple .lic files

  1. Since the filenames are the same for all .lic files sent via schneider-electric.flexnetoperations.com, you must first rename the files
  2. Put them in the License Files folder
  3. Make sure the license server is pointing to that folder (not an individual file)
  4. Reboot or Stop/Start/Reread license server using the LMTools utility.

Option 2 - Merge into one .lic file

Complete instructions in Manually Consolidating License Files

  1. Open each license file using a text editor.
  2. Cut and paste the "Features" into one of the files (Do not copy the file "header")
  3. Place this file in the License Files folder
  4. Reboot or Stop/Start/Reread license server using the LMTools utility.
