OpenLM supports the monitoring of a wide variety of license managers such as Flexera FlexLM (Flexnet), Beta LM, IBM LUM, DSLS, Sentinel HASP, Sentinel RMS, Reprise RLM, and LM-X.
This application note elaborates the steps required to configure OpenLM to interface the EasyCopy License Manager, and obtain reliable license reports and usage statistics. This capability is available for Easycopy versions 8.7.12 onward.
OpenLM Server configuration
In order to configure OpenLM to monitor an EasyCopy License Manager, The OpenLM Server must be configured as follows:
Click the ‘Add’ button.
Set the LM Type to ‘Other’
Set the License server’s Time zone (e.g.: Central Time)
Type in the Hostname (e.g. easycopy_lm) or IP of the EasyCopy License server.
The port number is insignificant here. Type in any number (e.g.: 123). Note that the same number will need to be used in the OpenLM Broker configuration as well (see below).
Click the ‘Apply’ and “Restart now” buttons.
OpenLM Broker Configuration
After setting the OpenLM server, the Broker needs to be configured as follows:
As several customers have recently inquired whether OpenLM would support the Aspentech Software License Manager (‘SLM’), we looked into it and found that SLM relies on the Sentinel RMS license management tool. Specifically, in their “Quick Guide to Installing and Configuring the SLM” document, AspenTech clearly notes that “AspenTech V7.3 SLM licensing system uses Sentinel RMS License Manager version 8.4″.
It also states that “If Sentinel RMS License Manager version 8.4 server is installed on your network license server machine … you can skip the installation of the network license server and proceed to installing the network license file and configuring the network license server options.”
We have verified this information with two of our clients, and found that OpenLM does indeed monitor Aspentech SLM license management information, and provides application usage management for Aspentech.
