FLOATING LICENSE SERVER INSTALLATION

Our networking licenses are distributed in a very usual way. We provide you a license server software (LM-X from x-formation), and a license file that contains a number of token that can be distributed in your local network. Each time a user launch one of our software product, a token is checked out, each time the software product is closed (or even crash), the token is released. If your license allow X tokens, then X clients will be able to run the software.

1 – Install LM-X end user tools

Download and install the server software and its tools on your server machine using appropriate installer depending if you want to run the license server under windows or under linux.

For Windows Server: lmx-enduser-tools_v4.8.12_win64_x64.msi
For Linux Server: lmx-enduser-tools_v4.8.12_linux_x64.tar
For MacOS Server: lmx-enduser-tools_v4.8.11_darwin_universal.sh.zip

Check “Install LM-X license server” and using the “Browse…” button, specify the location of our Rizom-Lab vendor library that you can download there:

For Windows Server: liblmxvendor.dll
For Linux Server: liblmxvendor.so
For MacOS Server: liblmxvendor.dylib

2 – Get the ethernet address of the machine that will be used as a license server

You should have a 12 hexadecimal lenght string that look like this one: 52H62B1BAH52

TIP: To get the server ethernet address, you may use the tool lmxconfigtool, which is is included into the LM-X End-user Tools package and present into the license server installation directory.

3 – Tie your license to the license server machine and download your license file

Go to your account and use the “SET” button of the “HostID” field to set the ethernet MAC address of your license server machine. Then click the download button to get your license file.

TIP: If you don’t see any floating license in your account it is because either you don’t have puchased any license yet, or because your reseller did not transfer your license yet to your account, or because you are logged using a wrong account.

4 – Copy the license file (.lic) into the license server machine’s harddisk

Simply copy the license file on your machine server’s harddisk.

5 – Specify the license file location (.lic) in the lmx server config file LMX-SERV.CFG

In the server configuration file lmx-serv.cfg, which can be found in the directory where you installed the license server, add a line like this one (for windows, for unix os, use forward slashes):

LICENSE_FILE = C:\Place\where\licence file resides\your_license_file.lic

More information on the server config file can be found there

8 – On each client machine
Server Path Config

Download and Install the last RizomUV release that you can find there , then set the environment variable LMX_LICENSE_PATH so that it contains the communication port and the ip of the server, e.g:

set LMX_LICENSE_PATH=6200@192.168.0.33

Don’t forget to set that variable for all users of the machine so that all of them can use the software.

Silent Install

For a silent install of the Windows setups use:

RizomUV_VSRS.XXXX.X.XX.xxxxxx.xxxx.exe /SILENT

or (no GUI at all):

RizomUV_VSRS.XXXX.X.XX.xxxxxx.xxxx.exe /VERYSILENT

Please follow that link to get more information about the installer command line.

9 – Verify that all involved firewalls have their port 6200 open

Check that port 6200 is open on both direction and both on server and client machines for tcp and udp protocols.

Notice: You can change the TCP port to another value than 6200. But the UDP must be the 6200.

Please verify that you set the LMX_LICENSE_PATH correctly (have a look at section 8).
1. Check that your license server is running.

2. Check the log of your license server. See at the end if feature “Save” and “Info” are available. If they aren’t, you may have an incorrect license file.

3. Check that your license server is reachable by the client with TCP and UDP (both at port 6200)

Yes, providing that no firewall block communication of the port 6200 and a valid route exist between the license server and the clients machines.

However, because it has a longer way to the server, RizomUV may be
a bit slower on startup
