1.2. Step 1: Install 6.x Server Software

If you have a 7.x network, see Step 1: Install 7.x Server Software.

If you already have a 6.x version of our server software on this server, you can skip this step. See What if I already have a Palisade 6.x license on this server? for more information.)

If you're installing your first Palisade 6.x license on this server, even if you have Palisade 5.x licenses, then you need the 6.x server software. Download the server installer from the link you received in email, and run it as administrator.

Folders used: If you already have any Palisade software installed (6.x server software or 5.x/6.x end-user software), the installer will use the existing Palisade folder. Otherwise, the installer will suggest C:\Program Files (x86)\Palisade or C:\Program Files\Palisade for the install, but will let you select a different install folder. NetServer and System folders will be created under the install folder unless they already exist.

The main components of the installed server software are:

PalisadeNetwork.lic is the same for every network and should not be touched.

Server.lic will be rewritten by Server Manager if you change server options, and Palisade Technical Support will supply a new Server.lic if you get a certificate license.

Palisade.opt is also written by Server Manager and is used to manage borrowing in Concurrent Networks. You can add some FLEXnet options to Palisade.opt; see Can we use our standard FLEXnet options file? and Access Control in Concurrent Network.

Palisade software release 6.x installs FLEXnet Publisher 11.10 as the licensing system. This is compatible with Palisade 5.x licenses and will not interfere with FLEXnet licenses from other vendors.

Caution: Do not alter any of the files in the NetServer folder, except as instructed in this Guide or by Palisade Technical Support. Our software uses the .lic and .opt files in customized ways that don't always match the standard FLEXnet usage.
