Node Locked Licenses
Licenses can be combined if the host IDs embedded in each
INCREMENT are the same.
To merge license files, copy all of the
INCREMENT lines from your separate license files into a new single license file.
Licenses can be combined if:
SERVERlines in each file is the same.
SERVERline in one file exactly matches the host ID field of each SERVER line in the other file.
You you can merge floating licenses together automatically using ARM's web licensing portal, 'ConnectLM', or manually.
In ConnectLM you can navigate to: Licensing > Licenses » Merge » Merge Licenses. Then you can search for licenses for a particular host ID. All licenses with that particular host ID will be returned, allowing you to select which ones you would like to merge, before clicking the Merge button.
To combine the license files, use a text editor and open one license file, copy the other license file into the text editor and then remove the duplicate SERVER,
USE_SERVER lines, e.g.:
SERVER this_host <hostid> VENDOR armlmd USE_SERVER
Be sure to always use the newest version of lmgrd used by either product and the newest version of each vendor daemon.
There are some examples that show this in more detail in the FLEXnet End User Guide which can also be found in the FLEXlm/FLEXnet subdirectory of your tools installation.
N.B. You are not entitled to use the mechanism for merging licenses to merge seats which have since been replaced by upgrade/update seats.
