The FlexNet Publisher license server (the floating license server) from Flexera is used for managing floating licenses. The basic components of the FlexNet Publisher license server are these:
- license server administrator
- license key file
- vendor daemon
A floating license allows you to install and use the same license on multiple machines. The licenses are managed by the floating license server. The floating license server has information on the total number of products and editions you have and how many of these licenses are currently in use.
Getting the FlexNet license server installation files
In your 'FlexNet License Server utilities' folder, you can find the FlexNet license server installation files, Administration user guides, and release notes. The folder is located in the appropriate media volume. To find out, which media volume contains the 'FlexNet License Server utilities' folder, see the 3DS Media list based on the release version.
For system requirements, refer to the Release Note of the specific version.
