Who has a licence?

Hello,

 

with lmutil_x64.exe lmstat -a -c @server i can see which user has a Inventor-licence, but not who has a Vault-licence. You see only how many Vault-licence are in use.

 

How can i see who has a Vault-licence?

 

Best regards

 

Michael

If I remember right, one of the ADMS log files records license status.  You might be able to write a script that scans throught the file and gives you a nice list of who has a license.

 

I am not aware of a nice list from ADMS about which users are consuming a license.

do you mean the function in the LMTools > Server Status > Perform Status Enquiry?

 

This shows me the same.

User of the Vailt-Licence is always the Server, you can not see wihich client has the licence.

When a user connects to Vault, it is the ADMS that get's the license, and then provides connectivity to the client.

Hello,

 

thanks for your answer.

I found the log-Files.

If anybody search this: Every day is made a new log-file under:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore with the name vlog-20120217.txt par example.

 

Best regards

 

Michael

Hello,

 

i made a WSH-script to read out the which users has a Vault license in use.

On the server you have to share the Folder C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore

I start this with a Batch-script, in this i read out with other FlexLM-License are in use.

 

if you want to use this in a batch file, you can start ist with "cscript.exe vault-license.vbs" an the output comes on the command line.

 

Best regards

 

Michael

Being placed to "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore" of ADMS and executed it reports "Pfad nicht gefunden" which I guess means "Path not found".

So there are a lots of vlogs just around but it can't see them...

Any ideas?

 

...Added later....

Ok I've fixed it a bit

instead

PfadLogfile = "\\SERVER\FileStore\"

printed

PfadLogfile = "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\VaultServer\FileStore"

And it returned the list of successful attempts for license.

But it is not the list of users who use license right now. Isn't it?
