Thank you. However, my existing file has FEATUREs and the license file that I download from the freescale website has INCREMENTs.
Just to clarify a few things in my understanding: We are utilizing one of our workstations as the license server, but, we all have local license.dat files which include both a) reference to the license server computer, by name and b) local MAC address - does this sound right?
If all that is right, I can run with it and modify each computers license.dat file, but the FEATURE/INCREMENT thing doesn't seem right.
mixing the licensing FEATUREs and INCREMENTs should not cause any problem.
In fact the license.dat file on the client side should include just 3 lines:
SERVER my_server 001C230ED9E1 1700VENDOR metrowksUSE_SERVER
3-rd line "USE_SERVER" in fact causes the client checks in the licensing feature from the licensing server. I assume these 3 lines are already available on each client if both your licenses are fixed to the same host. So merge the license on the server side and restart the service should be enough.
What did not work? Do the clients not find the licenses or is not the right number of licenses available?
I might be wrong here as I never setup any floating license setup. But I can vaguely remember that I once heard (you see I'm really not sure) that multiple floating licenses cannot be combined if they share some common features. Say if the two licenses both provide a counted Win32_CWIDE_Unlimited feature, then the server will only use the first instance of this license. So the second one is ignored (or was it the first one?). I think in this case email@example.com has to send out a combined license.dat which includes a single feature with the added up number of clients.
Well, really, once more a disclaimer: not my area of expertize.
BTW: No, I don't think you should post the content of the license files in here.
I knew that things didn't look right with the whole FEATUREs and INCREMENTs thing. I realize that CodeWarriorMacrovision does probably read both with no issue, but they don't create two instances of a Pertpetual FL...when combined. I also don't see a better way via the canned web interface. I agree that we either need two license servers, or a combined license file.
I will open a service request and see if I can obtain that.
