6.3 How can I change the order in which my license sources are accessed?

You can change the order of the license sources using the ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable.

If you have more than one license source, you might want to change the order that they are used by the client computer. For example, you might have two separate floating license servers, each with its own distinct license file, and one of these servers has more available licenses for a given product version than the other and you want to reference the server with more seats first.
If you are using a supported version of Windows, you can use the Windows Control panel to modify the ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable.
If you are using Unix or Linux, you might have to modify the ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable from the command line. Alternatively you can have the environment variable set automatically when you start a new shell.


On Windows, the length of ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE must not be more than 260 characters.
