Changing AdLM license server

99 Views, 2 Replies

At a client's office, I set up AdLM on a Windows NT 4.0 Workstation computer
for a 3 licenses of LT 97 (network deployment) several years ago. Now I'll
be changing the AdLM license server to a different computer (Windows 98),
updating the three existing licenses to LT 98, and adding two more licenses.

I know that I'll need a new authorization code and need to install LT 98 on
all of the existing workstations that currently share the three LT 97
licenses.

I'd prefer not to disrupt the current AdLM license server and three LT 97
licenses until l've got the new license server and licenses installed and
tested. Can I set up the new license server without disrupting the existing
one? Can I install LT 98 (network deployment) on a couple of workstations in
order to test the new license server, before I convert all of the other
workstations and shut down the old LT 97 license server?

Thanks,
- Mark Middlebrook

P.S. to Ann: Please don't move this message to the LT newsgroups. The AdLM
stuff is common to AutoCAD and LT, and the folks who know about AdLM are
likely to read this newsgroup, not the LT ones. Thanks!

Not sure about the legal end of it, but yes it can be done. Just be sure to
pull the old one down as soon as possible. Adesk tends to get a little bit
grumpy about people running two copies of the same license. We just did this
about 2 weeks ago, and I got the new one up and running then told everyone
their license was about to drop. Use the ADLM manager to terminate clients
then stop the service on the old machine. Soon as the service is stopped,
people can relaunch and they should find the new license server
automatically.

Thanks much for the information. I'll definitely pull the old license server
down as soon as the new one is up and running. This client is quite good
about software licensing, and besides, they're eager to put the old license
server machine into use for a different purpose.
