In a distributed license server configuration, the environment variable used to point a computer to the distributed license servers.
adskflex or adskflex.exe
The Autodesk vendor daemon used with the FLEXnet license technology. This daemon keeps track of the Autodesk licenses that are checked out and the computers that are using the licenses.
A type of network license that allows you to use an Autodesk product for a limited period of time disconnected from the network, without having to buy a separate license.
A program that runs continuously in the background of a computer. The daemon handles requests from the computer and then forwards the requests to other programs or processes. The Network License Manager uses two daemons: the vendor daemon (adskflex or adskflex.exe) and the license manager daemon (lmgrd or lmgrd.exe).
debug log file
A file used with FLEXnet to log connection events between the Network License Manager and the user's computer.
A set of files and folders created on a server and used by computers to install Autodesk programs with a consistent configuration.
A license server configuration option in which several servers are used to manage license distribution. Each distributed license server has a unique license file and a fixed number of licenses. If one distributed license server fails, the other servers are still able to distribute their licenses.
See host ID.
A license file parameter that represents the product that is supported by that license file.
The Flexera Software license management technology implemented in the Autodesk family of products.
The communication signal between the Network License Manager and the computer to verify that the computer is accessible and has an active Autodesk product session running.
The unique hardware address of a network adapter. Also known as Ethernet address or physical address.
The TCP/IP name associated with a computer. FLEXnet technology uses the host name as a parameter; the host name must be distinguished from the NetBIOS (server) name.
A state of inactivity in your product that prompts a network license server to reclaim a license. Inactivity is due to no mouse or keyboard activity and no commands, LISP expressions, menu macros, or scripts in progress for the period of time that is defined in the options file. See also license timeout.
JRE (Java Runtime Environment)
A program that is required to run Java programs.
A file used with FLEXnet that controls the number of available seats. This file must be in ASCII plain text format.
A server that contains the Network License Manager and manages the distribution of licenses to users.
For network licenses, this is a time period that starts counting when a computer that is using a license is idle. If the timeout period elapses and the computer remains idle, the license is returned to the license server and is available for use again.
In both single and redundant server configurations, the file used to point the computer to the FLEXnet license server. Licpath.lic is located in the root installation folder.
lmgrd or lmgrd.exe
The license manager daemon. This daemon handles the original contact with the program, and then passes the connection to the vendor daemon, adskflex or adskflex.exe.
lmtools or lmtools.exe
A graphical user interface utility for administering the FLEXnet license technology. See also lmutil or lmutil.exe.
lmutil or lmutil.exe
A command-line utility used to administer the FLEXnet license technology. See also lmtools or lmtools.exe
Seelmgrd or lmgrd.exe.
network license installation
A type of Autodesk product installation that requires the Network License Manager installed on one or more network servers to manage the distribution of product licenses to users.
Network License Manager
The technology used by Autodesk for network license management.
The file used by FLEXnet to set network license management parameters, such as the location of report logs and the time period for license borrowing.
See host ID.
A license server configuration option in which three servers are used to administer licenses. The redundant servers share a license file and a pool of licenses. The redundant server pool remains functional as long as two of the three servers are running and communicating with each other.
report log file
A file used with FLEXnet to provide information about network license usage. The options file sets parameters for the report log.
