The information on this page refers to versions prior to 4.4.3, which introduced an installation program that installs both the license server and the end-user tools. Manual installation is no longer required for Mac OS X.

The attached script can be used to run a Mac OS X license server at system startup. This file must be placed in the /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ directory.

All files used by the license server (licenses, logfile, configuration file, server executable) should be placed in /usr/xformation and must be accessible for the "daemon" user. General privileges can be set to 755 using chmod, as follows:

chmod -R 755 /usr/x-formation

The owner and group for the license server executable must have sufficient rights to run it, which you can set using the commands chown and chgrp.
