ANSYS Capture License Server Information

ANSYS Capture License Server Information

Procedure to obtain data necessary to create ANSYS, Inc. license key(s):

Run the following procedure on each system that you have designated to be a license server.

The system will ask you to answer several questions about yourself and your company. The system's hostname, FLEXlm hostid and hostid type will be displayed along with other information.

Please forward this information to your SimuTech sales representative so that license key(s) can be created for you.

Windows x64 Systems:

  1. Download the Windows x64 zip file (WINX64.zip).
  2. Unzip the zip file.
  3. Run the AnsRegSvr.exe file on the license server machine.
  4. In the AnsRegSvr utility’s dialog box, enter the information for your site and then press the OK button to display the license server information. (If you do not know your customer number, leave that information blank.)
  5. Press the dialog’s "Create File" button and select the desired file location.
  6. Repeat this process for any other Windows systems that will be license servers.
  7. Return this file to your SimuTech sales representative.

If you wish to retrieve this information manually, or are having trouble using the utility, the following commands run in a Windows command prompt will provide the necessary information (submit all output):

hostname
getmac /v
ipconfig /all

NOTE: nCode licenses must be created using the machine’s Ethernet address. If you need a license for nCode, this special hostid type can be retrieved by opening a command prompt window, going to the directory containing the AnsRegSvr.exe file, and issuing the following command: .\AnsRegSvr.exe /e

Linux x64 Systems:

  1. Download the Linux x64 tar file (LINX64.tar).

  2. Untar the tar file (tar xvf <tar_file_name>) where <tar_file_name> is the name of the tarfile.

  3. Follow the instructions in the README file contained in the tar file.

  4. Repeat this process for any other UNIX/Linux systems that will be license servers.

  5. Return this file to your SimuTech sales representative.
