About FlexNet Publisher Licenses
The FlexNet Publisher license server must be set up if WAE Design users are to use floating licenses. Using this server, you can control access to the licenses, monitor who has them checked out, and check log activity.
The FlexNet Publisher license server has two interfaces. One is a CLI, which requires that you start an lmgrd daemon so all users can access the floating licenses. The other is a web UI, where you must install and configure an lmadmin tool. Best practice is to use only one or the other interface (CLI or web) to administer the license server.
For information about FlexNet Publisher and for more details on all FlexNet Publisher CLI commands and GUI, refer to the FlexNet Publisher License Administration Guide (FlexLM_EndUser_LicAdmin.pdf). This is located in $CARIDEN_HOME/docs, which by default is /opt/cariden/software/mate/current/docs. This section includes some FlexNet Publisher instructions for both the CLI and GUI that could change without Cisco’s knowledge.
All instructions and examples assume you used /opt/cariden as the default installation directory. If you did not, substitute your installation directory for /opt/cariden.
Throughout this section, bin is /opt/cariden/software/flexlm/current/bin.
