What to do if RLM is already running on the Server.
What to do if RLM is already running on the Server where you want to install the License Manager for ExtendSim.
DO NOT use the installer named ExtendSimServerLicenseManager unless instructed below.
The Floating license of ExtendSim uses the Reprise License Manager (RLM.exe). If RLM is already running on the Server where you want to install the License Manager for an ExtendSim license, there are two options:
Case 1 • If the currently running version of RLM is release 12 or greater, use Case 1, below, to add ExtendSim files to the existing installation.
Case 2 • If the currently running version of RLM is earlier than release 12, use Case 2, below, to stop and remove the existing Service and instead use the RLM.exe that ships with ExtendSim.
Both cases accommodate the products that are already using RLM as their license manager.
CASE 1: IF THE CURRENTLY RUNNING VERSION OF RLM IS RELEASE 12 OR GREATER:
Step 1 • Install the ISV Settings File on the Server
DO NOT INSTALL THE EXTENDSIM LICENSE MANAGER ON THE SERVER.
By default the installer creates a folder named ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer that is placed at the root of the Server’s C drive (C:\ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer). The folder contains the RLM Svc folder and three files: extendsim.set, logfile, and RLM.exe.
After installation, the License Manager (RLM.exe) will silently run in the background as a Service named ExtendSimLicServer.
Before proceeding, we suggest you verify that ExtendSimLicServer is running as a Service.
Copy the all the settings and license files (but not RLM.exe) from the previous RLM server folder to the ExtendSimFloatingLicenseServer folder, which by default will be located at the root of the C drive.
