You can add realtime license servers and edit information for existing realtime license servers using the License Servers page, found under the Administration section. (This page is visible only for License Statistics administrator users.) Note: This page also lets you add and edit imported license servers, as described in v6.0 in Adding and editing imported license servers.

SettingDescription
General settings
Name The name for the license server that will be displayed in License Statistics. This can be any descriptive, unique name that helps you identify the license server in License Statistics pages.
Enabled

Check this box to enable monitoring for the license server. When this box is not checked, monitoring for the license server is disabled. The license server will appear in License Statistics pages as "Down."

Only enabled license servers are counted in the number of license servers you can monitor according to your License Statistics license agreement. You can add any number of disabled license servers. If you have reached your limit of license servers you can monitor, you can disable any license servers that you do not need to monitor and enable the license servers you do need to monitor.

License Manager Type

The type of license manager you are using for the license server. This selection list includes all supported license managers. 

If you select Custom as the license manager type, you must specify the path to your custom XML file (see Supporting a custom license server for information on adding a custom license server) in the Hostname field under Connection settings.

Query Tool Path

The path to the license manager's query tool defaults to license_statistics_installation_directory/query_tool_default_name, where the query tool default name is specific to the license manager being used, as follows:

FlexNet license servers are configured with case-sensitive names by default, so make sure the vendor name uses the correct case when configuring a FlexNet license server. An error in the vendor name may cause problems with License Statistics usage monitoring. See "Failure to find licenses for FlexNet license server" in FLEXlm and FlexNet license server issues for more information.
