Main display

The main display panel, titled License Information and Status, provides all pertinent information concerning the licenses that the server administers, including the current status of each license.

The information is presented in the form of a tree structure, with nodes grouped according to license types.



  1. Start license server: Starts up the license server on the existing computer. Disabled if the service is already running.

  2. Stop license server: Shuts down the license server. Disabled if the server is already down.

  3. Add license: Use this button to add a license, or a package of licenses, after receiving a license key or credential information from LogiGear.

  4. Request license: Click to submit a request to LogiGear for one or more licenses.

  5. Convert license: Click to convert a floating license into a host-based license and vice-versa. (Refer to Converting a floating license into a host-based license and Converting a host-based license into a floating license for details.)

  6. Remove license: Click this button after selecting a license package node, to remove the licenses from the license server.

    Use Remove license to remove expired license packages.

  7. Serve as Redundant License Server: Allows this license server to be designated as a redundant license server for a specified primary license server.

  8. Refresh display: Updates the display to reflect any changes in status, such as license requests and grants, since the last display.

Status bar

The status bar consists of two lines of information. The lower line reports the current state of the license server (started or stopped), the name and IP Address of the machine hosting the server, and the port number on which the server listens for license requests. If this machine is part of a primary server / redundant server configuration, the upper line reports the IP address and port number of the related server, and indicates its role (primary or redundant).
