How to manage Floating license in Windows Multi-User environment
Hi, I would like to manage iTest floating licence to force each users to choose license every time they launch iTest. Can you tell me how can i do that please ? In deed my problem is that some users take some plugins when they need it, but after they always keep it, and they don't think to release them through the menu : Help => About iTest Licencing. Moreover, if they are going through this menu, their iTest GUI will restart, so it's more easy to keep them. But if they don't have choice and have to select each time the licence needed, it will be easier for me to manage them. Thank you for your help. Br,
Yes, we don't have this option. When you open iTest at the very first time, the licensing configuration details will be asked and the details will be stored under the preferences file **com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs** located under `/Configuration/.settings`. #Fri Jul 12 23:03:57 IST 2013 eclipse.preferences.version=1 useLicenseServer=true licensePath= licenseServers=10.62.141.159\:-1; useLicenseFile=false So, from the second time onwards iTest will use the same configuration settings. If you want to choose licenses every time, every time you need to modify this preferences file by changing `useLicenseServer=true` with `useLicenseServer=false`.
Hi, Thank you for your help :) With your information i have found an easy solution. I have put the value useLicenseServer to false, and set the file com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs in Read Only mode. Like that iTest can't change this value anymore, and every time someone will launch iTest, the licence prompt will be displayed. Thank you again. BR,
I created a batch file, which deletes the `com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs` and starts the iTest. It will prompt you to choose licenses everytime. cd\ cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Spirent Communications\iTest 4.2\configuration\.settings del com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs cd\ cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Spirent Communications\iTest 4.2 iTest.exe Note: Rename the attached .txt file with .bat extension. : /storage/temp/3574-sample.txt
