When a new license file is a different filename than the file currently in use, you can’t just replace the existing file and “Reload” it. This short article covers how to change the service to a differently named license file without restarting the Siemens License Manager service, thereby allowing this change to be performed while users are connected and using the licensed products.
- Obtain the new license file and place a copy in the Siemens “PLMLicenseServer” folder
- Launch the Lmtools application in that same folder “as administrator”
- Select the Config Services tab
- Edit the “Path to the license file” to point to your new license file and click the Save Service button
