Floating License

Yes. Both the License Manager and Client devices could be virtual machines.

Log into the License Manager (ExtendSimLicServer) on the Server:

Open a browser on the Server and enter localhost:5054 in the browser’s address line.

Or, open a browser on some other device that is on the same network as the Server and enter servername:5054 in the browser’s address line.

Not directly. Before you try to move the License Manager, contact us at Sales@ExtendSim.com or 1.408.365.0305. We will revoke the current license so you can activate on the new Server. Then uninstall the License Manager from the original server as instructed in Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.

See the instructions "Uninstalling the License Manager from the Server" on page 6 of Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.

Only for up to 90 days after you install ExtendSim 10. Otherwise, you would be violating the ExtendSim License Agreement by allowing double the number of concurrent users. By the end of the 90 days, you must uninstall the ExtendSim 9 Network License as discussed on page 6 of Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.

For release 9, run the “Remove ExtendSim Server.exe” file in the Server’s ExtendSimServer folder. You should get two messages:

License Successfully Removed

Service Successfully Removed.

Then use Windows Settings to uninstall the ExtendSim Server files.

Yes. However, how you make the change depends on your situation:

If you received the ExtendSim.lic file while doing a manual activation but haven't resumed the activation process, change the port number in the file before proceeding. Then complete the activation procedure. Be sure to give the updated ExtendSim.lic to each Client.

If you have already activated the License Manager either automatically or manually, you don't need to get a new license file from us. Instead, edit your existing ExtendSim.lic file using the steps outlined in "License Manager - Manual Activation" on page 3 of Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses. Using a browser, open the RLSA window as indicated in the instructions. At step 6 copy the contents of your existing ExtendSim.lic file (located at C:ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer) into the field and edit the port number in that field. Then follow the remaining steps to edit and update the file and restart the License Manager. Be sure to give the updated ExtendSim.lic to each Client.

Installing the ExtendSim.lic file on the Client device broadcasts to automatically find the Server. If it can’t find the Server, it asks you to enter Server info (URL or computer name, etc.). It saves that location info in a host.lic file on the customer’s device so it doesn’t ask again.

Yes. Go to Documents/ExtendSim10 and open the Host.lic file. It has the name of the Server.

The license file (ExtendSim.lic) on the Server needs to be updated whenever there is a change to the license. To update the license file, repeat the steps for License Manager Activation on page 2 of Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses. After the Server’s license has been updated, the Client devices will automatically get the updated MSP information. There is no need to replace the ExtendSim.lic files on Client devices.
