1.4 Node-locked license scheme

A node-locked license locks the tools to a particular computer, or more accurately to a particular host ID.

A node-locked license is a good choice for an installation that will be used by one user on a single computer.

The tools license is tied to a particular host ID. If the device you used for the host ID fails, you cannot use the licensed product. The host ID used cannot be changed without a replacement license being supplied by Arm®.

The following example shows part of a typical node-locked license. This license allows the use of the specified Arm application, fromelf, on the single specific computer that is identified by its hostid value of 001F12FEAB43.
