3.3 Installing a node-locked license manually (Unix/Linux only)

Instead of using the ARM License Manager, you can install your node-locked license manually.

To manually install a node-locked license on a Unix/Linux computer:


  1. Retrieve your license from the ARM web licensing portal.
  2. Save the license file as a .lic file (for example, license.lic) and place it in an appropriate directory on your computer.
  3. Create or modify an environment variable called ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE to point to the location of your license. This location can either be the full path of the license file, or it can be the full path to the directory containing the license file. If only the directory path is specified, the license file must be a .lic file (for example, license.lic).
    You can create an environment variable on your Unix/Linux computer using one of the following methods:
    • Shell commands.
    • .flexlmrc.
    Using shell commands
    For example, if you are using csh or tcsh, you can set the environment variable by entering:
    setenv ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE pathname
    If you are using bash or sh, enter:
    where pathname is the location of the license file.
    See your operating system documentation for more information on setting up environment variables.
    Using the .flexlmrc file
    You can edit the .flexlmrc file in your home directory to add the environment variable. Add the line:
    where pathname is the location of the license file.
