Updating an Abaqus FLEXnet License File

You may need to update an Abaqus 2020 FLEXnet license file; for example, when you obtain a new license file to replace an expired license file or to revise license features. You may also need to replace a license file from a previous release of Abaqus.

You must have write permissions to update the license file. If your license file is independent of other products using FLEXnet Licensing, you can replace the current license file with the new one using two methods: restarting the license server or forcing the server to reread the license file.

 

Update a FLEXnet license file and restart the license server

1.     Backup the current license file by saving it with a new name.

2.     Copy the new license file to the same location as the original license file using the name of the original license file.

3.     Run the FLEXnet Licensing tool lmdown to shut down the currently running Abaqus license server.

4.     Restart the Abaqus license server.

 

Update and reread a FLEXnet license file

1.     Backup the current license file by saving it with a new name.

2.     Copy the new license file to the same location as the original license file using the name of the original license file.

3.     Run the FLEXnet Licensing tool lmreread to force the license server to reread the new license file.

The license file that you update must maintain its file name and path name (location). If either the file name or path name change, you should uninstall licensing and then run re-install it. The default name of the Abaqus license file is simulialm.lic. You can determine the name of the Abaqus license file by running the command

 

flex_install_dir/os/code/bin/lmstat -c [port]@license_server_host

 

Where license_server_host is the hostname of the license server. If the license server is using a port that is not between 27000 and 27009, you must specify the port number as well.

If your Abaqus license features are integrated with other products using a combined FLEXnet license file, replace the Abaqus licensing information in the combined license file with the updated information. You must run the FLEXnet Licensing tool lmreread to force the license server to reread the new license file.
