How to configure license sources for clients

Introduction

 

Users needing licenses from a license service must have their systems (clients) configured such that the client application can locate the license server. There are multiple ways to configure the license server on each client depending on the application used. Most applications offer the client user the ability to define the license server when the application is run for the first time. The next two sections offers different example methods to setup the client system to obtain licenses from a license service (license server):

 

 

Configuring License sources using GeoMedia 2020

After installing GeoMedia Desktop a configuration wizard runs which allows the license configuration to be modified. The same Hexagon Geospatial licensing wizard also appears anytime when you attempt to start an unlicensed client application.

To manually run the configuration wizard from the GeoMedia application:

 

  1. Select Start > GeoMedia Desktop 2020 > Utilities > GeoMedia Desktop Configuration Wizard.
  2. Select the desired product tier for which you are licenced (Essentials, Advantage, or Professional) then select Next > button.
  3. Select the desired language, then select the Next > button.

Note: If your system has no license source definition at all the Hexagon GeoSpatial licensing wizard is displayed immediately (go to step 5 below).

The Client License (Configure client licensing) dialog is displayed.

 

  1. Select the option to “Modify existing license configuration” and select the Next > button.
  2. Key-in the name of your license server in the “Concurrent License Sever” field (see graphic below).
  3. If the license service is using a user defined TCP PORT, specify the port number in the Port number field. If you are unsure, try leaving the Port number field blank.

Note: If the Port number is left undefined (blank), the client will try to connect to the Concurrent License Server using the following TCP PORTS: 27000, 27001, and 27002. To verify the specific port used by the service, review the IntergraphLicensingService.log file located in the C:\Users\Public\Intergraph\Licenses folder and search for the string “lmgrd tcp-port” to see the port value.

  1. Select the Next > button.

 

If you have multiple sources, you can order the sources. The licenses at the top will be searched first for a license.

 

  1. If you have multiple sources, optionally select a source to move the selected source up or down in the list to control priority. Undesirable sources can be removed using the Delete license source option.

In the example graphic below, an application will first check local trusted storage and if no license if found it will then check SERVER_B and finally SERVER_A.

  1. Optionally use the < Back button to define more sources (loop back to step 5 above).
  2. When you are done, click the Next > button to finish the configuration wizard.

 

Configuring License Sources using Geospatial Licenses

License sources including concurrent license servers can be easily configured in the Geospatial Licensing 2020, Geospatial License Administrator 2020 command.

After installing Geospatial Licensing 2020 on the client system, you can do the following to configure the client to look for licenses on a specific license server:

  1. Select Start > All Programs > Hexagon> Geospatial License Administration
  2. Select the View > Add Concurrent License Source… command (see graphic below).

The Add Concurrent License Source dialog appears.

 

  1. Enter the name of your license server in the “Computer name” field (see graphic below).
  2. If the license service is using a user defined TCP PORT, specify the port number in the Port number field. If you are unsure, try leaving the Port number field blank.

 

Note: If the Port number is left undefined (blank), the client will try to connect to the Concurrent License Server using the following TCP PORTS: 27000, 27001, and 27002. To verify the specific port used by the service, review the IntergraphLicensingService.log file located in the C:\Users\Public\Intergraph\Licenses folder and search for the string “lmgrd tcp-port” to see the port value.
