License file distribution to clients.
« on: November 03, 2005, 06:59:34 PM »
I received the latest license.dat file and have applied it to the server and several clients by hand. I cannot find how to automatically distribute the license to all clients. Each client appears to point to a license file on its own local hard drive. Is there a way to make them point to a license file on the server without going to each one?

Thanks for your time.

I'll second that request...I only have 12 servers but it would clearly be a nightmare for someon with many more.

Are you guys using the ADNM?

If using the ADNM, you don't basically have to worry about the license. It is leased from the AMS automatically. Only 3 weeks from the date/time of last communication with the server, but that should be way enough.

Please see the license section of the ADNM Deployment Guide for details (section 6.4)
