1.1 Supported platforms

You must ensure that Eclipse for DS-5 is supported on your chosen platform before installing it.

If you are also setting up one or more floating license servers, you must confirm that the license management utilities are supported on the server.

Client platforms

Caution

Attempting to use an unsupported client platform can result in unexpected behavior.
Check the product documentation to confirm what specific operating system variants are supported.

Floating license server platforms

Caution

Attempting to use an unsupported server platform can result in licensing failures.
Check the product documentation to confirm what specific operating system variants are supported.
The floating license server platform is not required to be the same as the tools platform. For example, you might have your development tools installed on Windows and use a Linux floating license server. See your product documentation for further information.
License management of floating licenses for ARM applications requires TCP/IP software to be installed, configured, and running on every relevant computer.

Cloud-based license servers

ARM supports locking floating licenses to the network interface MAC address only, and does not support any other cloud-specific hostid mechanisms.
To operate a FlexNet server on a cloud-based computer, it is therefore necessary to ensure that the computer has a stable MAC address permanently assigned to it, and that the FlexNet utilities can detect that MAC address. Use the usual FlexNet utilities to check that the MAC address can be found. For example, use the lmutil lmhostid command.
