Installing floating/server key onto a server

Problem

How do I install my floating/server license key on to a server?

Solution

When VSNi send you your server license key it will come as two attachments; vsn.lic and genstat.lic.  The file vsn.lic and genstat.lic should be saved in C:\flexlm\Flexnet on the license server and replace vsn.lic if there is already one in there.  The genstat.lic file should also be installed onto each PC linked to the server machine.  If GenStat is installed on a local hard disk, store this file in: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VSN International\Licenses.  If GenStat is installed on a networked drive, store this file in: <genstat folder>\Bin.

Then start c:\flexlm/Flexnet\lmtools, select the tab labelled “Start/stop/Reread”, and press the “ReRead license file” button.

Exit from lmtools and then go to desktop machine. Try starting GenStat.exe up to make sure it is still working.

For further details go to C:\Program Files\<genstat folder>\Doc\genstat.chm, and select the License management option -> Network license.

  • GenStat
