7.9 Configuring your floating license server to use the options file

When you create an options file, you must configure your floating license server to use it.

To configure the floating license server:


  1. You must edit your ARM tools license file so that the options file is called on the VENDOR or DAEMON line. For example, if your options file is called armlmd.opt, in your license file you must add VENDOR armlmd option=armlmd.opt.
  2. If you have multiple servers, repeat the change for the license files on each of your ARM floating license servers.
  3. Restart your floating license server or servers.
  4. If your configuration is successful, the server log shows messages that the options file is being used and that your restrictions defined in the options file are being implemented.
