I have seen many people coming across this situation so I wanted to share this apllication with you.
there are a few tools on the web that tell you how many vault licences are being used but they don't tell you who have them. So I followed the approach used by Michael in this thread : http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Vault/Who-h
This application was developed in Delphi. it reads the information in the Log files from Vault and tells you who has the license. It can be used for two types of users:
1. If you have acces to the machine running Vault Server, just run this software in that machine. although check first if the folder containing the log files is correct. (see This Blog)
2. If you don't have access to the Vault Server, then ask your IT Guy to create an automated windows task to copy the log files in a shared network location. Then run the software by changing the folder to that network location.
Since this file size is not supported on this dsicussion group, I could not upload it here, but you can downloaded from this link : Dowload
I have used this tool In Vault 2013 and 2014 english versions only, I am not sure if it works in other versions or languages. please comment if it does.
I would love to hear comments.
One request though: KUDOS If you like and use this tool.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by Mario-Villada. See the answer in context.
No worries Steve,
Thanks for pointing this out. Cool video you made.
Another workaround is to select all with the mouse, and then copy (CTRL + C) and paste the result in any word processor like note pad.
However, I made a new version of the tool that allows you to resize the window and It also has scroll bars.
This new version (1.5) can be downloaded from here:
All the best.
I tried using this with 2014 but it isn't working properly. License consumption is now recorded in the AVFS log file in the same location.
I have uploaded a new version of the software that I think it might work on 2014 as well.
Do you think you could try it and let me know if it works?
It can be downloaded from THIS LINK.
Great program! I tried it out on a 2014 logfile, and it says no licenses are checked out (whereas it should say Ed has it out).
Attached is the AVFS logfile, hope this helps troubleshoot it!
Silly mistake from my side. It turns out that the program was not reading the very last line of the log file so it was giving you the wrong information. It is all fixed now.
Sot to avoid any confusion, 2013 AND 2014 Vault users please download the app from here: DOWNLOAD LINK
Fantastic Job, Mario!
I can confirm you that the original program also works on a VAULT 2011 Professional, Windows 2008 64bit server.
I downloaded the other two versions too, as I expect to migrate to 2014 this year. I suppose the non-fixed 2014 version will not work, right?
Best regards, and thank you very much for creating this tool!!
A side question, don't you find it a bit surprising that this feature is still not included in the tools provided by Autodesk?
