Creating a redundant license server setup

The steps to create a redundant server setup is very similar to a regular network installation. The three differences in this process are:
 
  1. The license file must be created using the Offline Activation webform.

    Instructions for generating a license file for redundant servers can be found here.
     
  2. A copy of the license file (Maple.lic) and the license manager (FLEXlm) would need to be installed and configured on *each* server
     
  3. Each client would need to have the license.dat file replaced with an edited license.dat file containing information about the redundancy.
     

License File Configuration

When you install Maple on a client for a regular network installation, the license.dat file will look something like the following:
========================================================
#
# License File for Windows Network Client Installations
#
 
SERVER servername ANY 27000
USE_SERVER
========================================================
where, "servername" is replaced with the name or IP address of the single FLEXlm license server.

 

Redundant License File Configuration

For a redundant server setup, the license.dat file would need to look like:
=========================================================
#
# License File for Windows Network Client Installations
#
 
SERVER servername1 ANY 27000
SERVER servername2 ANY 27000
SERVER servername3 ANY 27000
USE_SERVER
==========================================================
where "servername1", "servername2", "servername3" are replaced with the names or IP address of the redundant FLEXlm license servers.
