My office is working on moving to a new site. During this move we are upgrading all of our hardware to allow for expansion in the near future. With the upgrades we are obviously putting our current License Server in storage and moving all of our services between two new servers we are bringing in.
My question is, what is the best way to migrate the LM License Server from one server to another? Am I able to request the .lic file now and bring the new server up before I bring the old server down? How do I change the client computers to look for the new license server instead of the old?
None of these steps are documented very well at all so any help would be appreciated.
Absolutely. Get your new NLM installed and set up with your new license file from Autodesk and then when you are ready, retire your existing NLM and point the new clients to the new server. You can do this with a system environment variable to automate the process.
