1 Introduction
This document describes the steps to install HBM Prenscia Licensing as a standalone application. HBM Prenscia
Licensing uses LM-X licensing (X-Formation). A valid LM-X license (license.lic) is required to complete the license
configuration but is not required for installation.

2 Microsoft Windows Installation

2.1 Installing HBM Prenscia Licensing


The figures below display the 64-bit version of the software; 32-bit dialogs are similar, but not identical.

NOTE: You need administrative privileges to install this software.

1. Exit all Microsoft Windows programs.

2. Launch the installation program (licinst.exe) from the downloaded folder (unzipping it first if necessary).

3.5 Linux License Server Configuration


The following files are required to run the server license, and can be found in the <HBM Prenscia install>/Licensing/bin
directory of your installation:

• liblmxvendor.so

• lmxendutil

• lmx-serv

In addition to these files the installation will generate a default license configuration file called hbmuk-serv.cfg in the
<HBM Prenscia install>/Licensing/config directory. This configuration file is an ASCII text file, which can be opened and
modified using any text editor. The configuration file can be used to set the TCP listen port, path to the license file and
path to the log file.

Decide where you wish to place the LM-X license file and copy it to that location.

(This will usually be in the <HBM Prenscia install>/Licensing/license directory of your installation.)

Licensing Installer NC-LIC-INS 18.00.01 13


We recommend using the configuration file when starting the license server, the path to the license file should be set
to your license file name by editing the following line:

# or on Linux

# LICENSE_FILE = ../license/123456.lic

Remove the comment ‘#’ notation and set the license file name appropriately.

Advanced license server configuration will require further editing of the hbmuk-serv.cfg configuration file for example:

• Setup of High-availability Licensing (HAL) also known as redundant license servers.

• Options for restricting license server usage on the network

The default configuration file contains example syntax for these settings that is commented out; further information
on the options available may be found on the X-Formation website:

https://docs.x-formation.com/display/LMX/LM-X+End+Users+Guide

The server license may be started from the <HBM Prenscia install>/Licensing/bin directory; the syntax for this is as
follows:

lmx-serv [-background -config configfile -licpath licensefile -logfile logfile -port portnumber]

Where the switches (long version/short version) are as follows:

-background -b Run the license server as a daemon in the background.

-config -c Specify an optional path to the hbmuk-serv.cfg configuration file. Typing the full path is required. If the server
is run without the -c parameter, it will use default settings.

-licpath -l Specify an optional license file path that will be read in addition to those specified within the hbmuk-serv.cfg
configuration file. If no default license is defined in the configuration file and the -l parameter is not specified (or no
license can be found in given location), the server will look for all .lic files in its directory.

-logfile -lf Specify an optional logfile path, which will override any logfile settings in the hbmuk-serv.cfg configuration
file.

-port -p All Specify an optional port number, which will override the port number set in the configuration file.

A typical example of running as a daemon in the background is as follows:

lmx-serv -b -c ../config/hbmuk-serv.cfg

The LM-X end user utility lmxendutil may be used to remotely shutdown or restart the license server:

lmxendutil –shutdownserver [-host host –port port –password password ]

lmxendutil -restartserver [-host host –port port –password password ]

For example:

lmxendutil –shutdownserver –port 6220 –password MyPassword123

Licensing Installer NC-LIC-INS 18.00.01 14


The default password for remote shutdown is MyPassword123, this may be set within the configuration file.
