Installing the Network License Manager

1.0 PowerStation Licensing


1.1

Security Hardware Key


Stand-alone hardware key Network hardware key Placed and reside on the back of your computer. Placed and reside on a License Manager Server.

ETAP PowerStation uses two different types of hardware keys to license the use of the software:

The two types of hardware keys look similar; however, the Network hardware key will have a small sticker that says Network on it.

1.2

Stand-Alone Version of PowerStation Licensing

A Stand-alone hardware key is placed directly on the parallel port of the computer (Windows 95/98 or NT) that will be running the software. No installation is required other than PowerStation itself; licensing for the computer will be done automatically by the Stand-alone hardware key and software installed by the PowerStation setup program.

1.3 Network Version of PowerStation Licensing


A Network hardware key requires either Windows NT Workstation 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0 to operate. Place the Network hardware key on the back of the computer designated to license PowerStation. This will be the permanent location of the key, and as such should not be removed once it is operational.

1.4

License Manager Server

For the purpose of running PowerStation, the computer containing the Network hardware key is called the License Manager Server. The License Manager Server needs to be ON and RUNNING to issue authorization to run PowerStation. Each computer running PowerStation (Windows 9/985 or NT) requests authorization from the License Manager Server via your LAN or WAN. If the License Manager Server does not issue the requested authorization, PowerStation will NOT run. The License Manager Server does not require the actual PowerStation software to be installed.

1.5 ETAP License Manager


The ETAP License Manager is a Windows NT Workstation 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0 program that assists the Network hardware key in licensing the use of PowerStation. The Network hardware key provides licensing of up to 254 simultaneous users of PowerStation via a local area network (LAN) and/or a wide area network (WAN). The ETAP License Manager manages the administration of simultaneous PowerStation users as set forth in the terms of your ETAP license agreement. Proper operation of PowerStation requires the installation of the ETAP License Manager on the License Manager Server and the modification of the ETAPS.INI file on each PowerStation users computer. The Network hardware key and the ETAP License Manager use minimal processor time and do not require more than 10MB of free disk space for proper operation. IF the machine will also be

This copy includes the following files: DS1410D.SYS DOWNTVDD.DLL ETAPKEY.EXE READKEY.TXT 3. Copy, from the PowerStation CD, the file POWERSTN/LICMGR/ ETAPSLM.EXE into the WINNT/SYSTEM32/DRIVERS sub-directory. 4. From the WINNT/SYSTEM32/DRIVERS sub-directory run the file ETAPKEY.EXE. 5. Select Install ETAP Key from the ETAPKEYs menu. Exit from ETAPKEY.

2.2 PowerStation Installation


For each computer (Windows 95/98 or NT) that runs PowerStation, install PowerStation using the Typical installation option. See the PowerStation Installation section for details. Please carefully review the ODBC installation portion of the PowerStation installation section before you install PowerStation. Note that to run PowerStation, each user MUST be a registered user on the License Manager Server. As a minimum, each user must be a member of the Users group on the License Manager Server. If you use Domain administration as provided by the Windows NT Server, it is sufficient to add the Domain Users group to the License Manager Servers User Manager / Policies / User Rights / Access.

2.3 Updating ETAPS.INI File


You need to setup the INI file of each local computer to indicate the location of the License Manager Server. Run PowerStation once. The program will issue the following message:

Press OK to close PowerStation. This procedure creates the ETAPS.INI file. Edit the WINNT/ETAPS.INI (Windows NT) or WINDOWS/ETAPS.INI (Windows 95/98) file using Notepad or a similar text editor. This procedure will tell PowerStation where the ETAP License Manager is located. Modify the line that says: LM Server= Insert the name of the License Manager Server. For example: LM Server=CpuName

If you are running PowerStation directly on the License Manager Server, you need to modify this line by typing a period after the equals sign: LM Server=.

3.0 Installation Verification


3.1 Verifying ETAP License Manager Installation
After rebooting the License Manager Server, go to START/ SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL /DEVICES to verify that the ETAP License Manager is running. Find the entry DS1410D in the Device list box. The entry should show Started Automatic. If you cannot find DS1410D, you have not copied the files from the PowerStation CD correctly or you have not run ETAPKEY.EXE properly. Go to START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/SERVICES. Find the entry for ETAPS Lic Mgr in the Service list box. If you cannot find ETAP Lic Mgr, you have not installed ETAPSLM.EXE properly. The ETAPS Lic Mgr entry should be Started or blank. If the status is blank, highlight the ETAPS Lic Mgr entry and Start it.

3.2 Verifying ETAP License Manager Operation


Go to START/PROGRAMS/ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS/EVENT VIEWER to view the ETAP License Manager output. Select Application from the Log menu to view the applications log. ETAP License Manager logs all licensing events to the applications log. When the ETAP License Manager starts, you will see three events in the log identified as Source ETAPS LMService. The ETAP License Manager uses this source when it writes event information to the applications log. Select the first ETAP License Manager event. Double-click on the event to view the event detail dialog. The message references error: 0. The error reference is not important. However, the message following the error reference - ETAPS License Manager starting.... is important. The description will read something like this: The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( Etaps LMService ) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): Etaps LMService error: 0, ETAPS License Manager starting..... Close the event detail dialog and double-click the next ETAPS LMService message. You should see a message indicating: ETAPSLM has detected a valid ETAP PowerStation security key Close the event detail dialog again and double-click the third ETAPS LMService message. You should see a message indication similar to: Key SN: 3087007744-345610626 Licensed to: Operation Technology, Inc. Version: 020000 Users: 5. (Of course, your serial number, the licensee, version, and number of users will be specific to your Network hardware key.)

You have now verified your ETAP License Manager is correctly installed and running properly. The latest issue of ETAP License Manager is version 5.2.1.041800 and is intended to work with PowerStation Rel 1.4.0 (Build 052197) or later (including PowerStation 2.0 and 3.0).
