Obtaining and installing a new license for ARM Forge Tools¶
Every year it is necessary to complete a PO to renew the license for ARM Forge Tools. Occasionally it may be necessary to obtain a new license out-of-band (perhaps due to requirements of a new version of Forge Tools) via email@example.com. The current person responsible for the PO is Marc Paterno.
Installing a new license on the license server¶
Once a license has been obtained, it will be received as a tar file containing two files,
Licence.<#> (note the British spelling). If you do not already have
sudo access to
allinea-lic.fnal.gov, you should request it via ServiceDesk. Then:
- Copy the old license to preserve it in case of problems:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org cp -i /opt/FLEXlm/Allinea/v70/licenses/Licence.<#> /opt/FLEXlm/Allinea/v70/licenses/old_licenses/Licence.<#>.<previous-year>If there is already an old license by that name due to an out-of-band license file renewal, append (say)
.<#>to avoid overwrite.
- Copy the license file into the correct place:
scp Licence.<#> email@example.com:/opt/FLEXlm/Allinea/v70/licenses/
- Restart the server:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org sudo /usr/bin/systemctl restart allinea-licenceserver.service
- Check for a good restart of the service:
sudo /usr/bin/systemctl status allinea-licenceserver.serviceIf the service does not restart successfully, it is possible that an upgrade of the license server software is necessary: enter a ServiceDesk ticket.
