ADLM on Small Business Server

115 Views, 10 Replies
11-23-1999 10:32 AM
I recently installed AdLM for AutoCAD Map 3 on our Small Business Server
(WinNT 4.0 sp 4). I read a tech document (td154038.doc) that indicated that
I should be logged in local to the machine, not the NT domain. I don't have
that option. When I select the pull down in the Domain window at the login
screen I don't have any options. What can I do to get the networked PCs to
see the AdLM? Has anyone had this problem before? Everything else with the
install seems correct, but the clients can't get a license.

Thanks,

Ken,

First thing to do is look at your log file (adlm.log located in c:\adlm\log).
Look for authentication failures and attempts by clients to start Map. You are
likely to find an error message that will point you towards the problem.

Attached you'll see the Adlm.log file. I can't see anything wrong, other
than there is no indication that the clients are trying to get a license
from the server.

Re: ADLM on Small Business Server

To install ADLM Server you need to be local on the Server, or you can install
the Server on any machine but you need to note that this machine acts as the
ADLM Server.

To install the clients you need to have installed deployment files on the
server, that the clients use to install AutoCAD to their workstation.

Hope this helps.

I increased the verbosity of the log file and include pertinent parts of it
here. Can anyone tell me why the client queried the server for a license
but didn't receive one?

The question might sound stupid but, what append when you query the server, does
it "sees" the ADLM server?

Re:

As an international user the first question i would ask is since map and its
inbuilt autocad generally both require a feature code, are there two feature
codes available from the server adlm or is the autocad component authorised
in a seperate manner?. International can use a dongle, domestic uses
authcodes.
ACAD Map clients should generally be installed as dual network clients not
half standalone half network.

Yes the client 'sees' the server. I can ping the server by name from the
client and I can ping the client from the server.
I didn't know that I needed to authorize AutoCAD and Map separately. I am
under the impression that Map is a stand alone product that only needs one
authorization code. I know that it is built on the AutoCAD core, but I
shouldn't need to load and authorize both separately. At least none of the
documentation talks about this.

Yesterday, I tried using a different NT station as a license server, but I
got the same results. I'm at a loss as to what to try next.

Go to your c:\adlm\key directory, you should have two .lic files in there, if you
see only one, that is your problem. When you got your authorization you should
have received two codes. Each must be entered by running a session of AdLM Admin
for each code.
