Where can I download FlexLM server? Is there a cost for this, in addition to C++ user licence? What platforms is it supported on? We are using Red Hat Linux, Solaris, Solaris x86 in our development environment. Where is installation documentation for FlexLM?
Robert, Yes, this is not the right forum. It will be moved to the 'Download, Licensing and Registration' forum. But for now, let me answer your request with the next communication thread. Regards, Hubert.
The link you provided should work, but try an alternative link for downloading theIntel License Manager for FLEXlm* version 2.0: https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1582 Choose the right platform. We support Linux*, Window*, Mac OS* X. Solaris is no longer available. The user guide is available for download too from the same page. There is no additional cost for the license manager. A floating license includes the license manger.
Please don't hesitate to follow up if you need more help. Regards, Hubert.
Thanks Hubert, Igor. I have downloaded the FlexLM software after registering VTune key. I was expecting a separate download or evaluation download. I have installed the VTune and C++ composer licences on our server and pointed secondard build box at this FlexLM server and done some basic checks on the licences and it appears to be working as expected. I did see notes in FlexLM admin guide for some redundancy in FlexLM hosting, which I will need to investigate further.
Redundancy is usually accomplished by having 3 FlexLM servers installed on 3 different servers and having their host IDs added to the license file through the license management. If you did not have an option to enter up to 3 host IDs when you initially created the license file, then perhaps it can be done by rehosting the license.
Bear in mind that such a feature also may not be supported because many vendors use FlexLM and not everyone allows all of its features to be used. Finally, some vendors may allow only a limited number of rehostings so use those with care.
