This page refers to License Statistics v5.12 or newer, which introduced the ability to add imported license servers.

You can add imported license servers and edit information for existing imported license servers using the Imported License Servers grid in the License Servers tab of the Administration page. (This page is visible only for License Statistics administrator users.) This page also lets you add and edit realtime license servers, as described in Adding and editing realtime license servers. You may also import license servers by copying the file to the proper directory in License Statistics, as described in Supported license servers.

The Imported License Servers grid includes information for all currently configured imported license servers, including:

Column NameDescription
NameThe display name for the license server.
HostnameThe hostname of the license server. If the license server is configured to be redundant (three servers are used) this is the hostname of the main license server. 
Lic ManagerThe license manager type (can be any supported license manager or a custom license manager).
Last Import TimeThe last time the license server data was imported.
