Question QI-005 (continued)
Please note that the following instructions are for installation of a floating license on Unix/Linux computers only.
The installation instructions for various other license types and platforms may be found here.
System ID for Floating License
The system ID for the floating license is obtained by running the echoid command, found in the <ADINAHOME>/slm directory (<ADINAHOME> denotes the directory where ADINA is installed).
cd <ADINAHOME>/slm ./echoid
The program will echo the 'Lock Code 1' of your installation. The Lock Code 1 ID is the system ID that you need to send to ADINA R & D (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to obtain the license file.
For University users: please also provide the IP subnets where ADINA will be used, e.g., 152.12.*.*. You may specify up to 6 subnets.
Starting the Floating License Manager
The floating license file must be named "lservrc" and placed in the <ADINAHOME>/slm directory.
To start the ADINA floating license server, run the lserv program.
This completes the ADINA floating license installation.
Checking License Availability
To check the availability of floating licenses available on your server, run the lsmon command by typing lsmon followed by the license server machine name. E.g., if your license server machine host name is "galileo", the command will be
Stopping the Floating License Manager
If you need to stop the floating license manager, run the lsrvdown command, followed by the license server machine name, e.g.,
Restarting the Floating License Manager
If you need to restart the floating license manager, first, run the lsrvdown command to stop the floating license manager, e.g.,
./lsrvdown galileoThen, run the lserv command to start the floating license manager.
No license features listed in lsmon output
Firewall prevents access of license server from clients
SentinelLM server already running for other programs
If the current license server program is running SentinelLM 7.0 or later, ADINA programs will be to get the license from the license server. If not, you need to stop the current license server program, put the combined license file to the <ADINAHOME>/slm directory and start the ADINA license server program. The other programs should be able to obtain the licenses as usual. You can run lsmon to verify that all the license features are there.
Please refer to the README file in the <ADINAHOME>/slm directory for more information.
