ARCHIVED: At IU, how do I use the Central License Service?
Data Management Services (DMS) at Indiana University offers centralized FLEXlm licensing services for ESRI (ArcGIS), Leica Geosystems (ERDAS), and Research Systems Inc. (ENVI) software products. DMS manages a two-server Unix system to provide automated failover capability. The primary FLEXlm license server for GIS and remote sensing software is Licet. This system resides alongside other Indiana University mission critical systems in the Wrubel Computing Center machine room. It is administered by the Research and Technical Services (RATS) group with the Research and Academic Computing (RAC) division of University Information Technology Services (UITS). The secondary license server, Caliburn, is located on the IUPUI campus.
DMS controls access to the centralized license services using a
librarian file or option file. This file lists hostnames, usernames,
or IP numbers of users granted access to licenses on the
service. Before attempting to use the centralized license service, you
must contact a GIS Specialist by sending email to
firstname.lastname@example.org to provide this
information about your system.
Before installing ENVI, ERDAS, or ESRI software that requires FLEXlm licensing, verify that the following line is included in your system's DNS suffixes: uits.indiana.edu For information about how to add DNS suffixes, see the Knowledge Base document In Windows 8 and earlier, how do I change the DNS and WINS server IP numbers?
