License file example

Hi, working with Viz 4 and AD2002. I have several flexlm servers up, and
would like to use the "distributed" method of license pooling. My
understanding is that I need to modify each server's .lic file to make it
"aware" of the other servers serving licenses. That lic file gets sent down
to the client, and if the local server goes belly up or runs out of
licenses, the client know to look at one of the remote servers.

What I'm having a hard time with is finding the proper syntax for the lic
file. what exactly I should be doing, so to speak.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

If you have multiple license servers set up across the org then you are
already using distributed licensing, you just haven't told the clients about
it.

The servers, as they are set up should be fine. One server does not need to
know about the existence of other servers, it's the clients that need to
know about the other servers. Take a look at
http://support.autodesk.com/getdoc.asp?id=ts64909 and see if that explains
it for you. If not please post back.

Thanks Jason. Basically the same as adlm. I presumed that Flex would be
significantly different.

Thank you for the link, very helpful. I really hope you're appreciated
within Autodesk for the assistance you provide.

Thanks,

Mike

Whoops. Follow up question(s):
The document does not refer to Viz specifically, but I dont think that
matters much. But how do you handle the environment variables for Viz vs.
2002? I mean, if the same servers in all offices are serving up Viz and
2002 on the same hostname, it really doesn't matter. But from what I can
tell, I'm now forced to do that. How do you config the variable on machines
running both Viz and 2002, that might need differenent LM_LICENSE_FILE
variables?

Thanks,

Mike
