FlexNet v188.8.131.52 floating license server software
The FlexNet v184.108.40.206 floating license server software has a defined default
order in which license files are sorted when parsed by the floating license server at
startup. The default basic sorting rules within a single license file, from highest to
lowest priority, are:
are sorted alphabetically.
INCREMENT entries are
issued before counted
Lower versions for an
issued before higher versions.
NoteThe FlexNet documentation states that higher versions take
precedence over lower versions but Flexera support has confirmed
this is incorrect.
Licenses with the most recent
if specified, are issued before older licenses.
To define the use order of your licenses, add a
in the required
INCREMENT line, where
an integer from 000 to 255. The lower the
the higher the priority. The default sort value is 100. As this
value is used when no
SORT is defined by the
user, lines with values less than 100 appear before unmodified lines,
and lines with values greater than 100 appear after unmodified lines.
For example, if you have
in your license file with versions 3.1 and 4.0, you can ensure that
the 3.1 license is made available first if you add a
to the 3.1 INCREMENT as follows:
