4.5. Two or More 5.x Network Products on Same Server

Applies to:
All Palisade concurrent network products 5.x
(If you have 6.x, or a mix of 5.x and 6.x, please see Two or More 6.x Network Products on Same Server.)

Question:
I have purchased multiple products with concurrent network licenses. Can I put them on the same server?

Response:
If they are all 5.x releases, the answer is yes.  Either all the licenses must be certificate type, or all must be trusted storage type.

(NOTE: Different editions, such as Industrial and Professional, count as different products. Also, @RISK on its own is a different product from the DecisionTools Suite, even though the Suite includes @RISK.)

Certificate Licenses

(a) Please refer to the document Palisade Concurrent Network (Certificate-Based) ReadMe and perform Server Step 1 for all products.

(b) Perform Server Step 2 for one product only, but when you send you email to Technical Support mention all the serial numbers that you want to authorize on this server, including any that were previously authorized.  (Since the new certificate will supersede any existing certificate, it's important to include all new and old licenses on the same certificate.)

(c) Continue with Server Steps 3 and 4 once only, not once for each product.

(d) Now you should be able to install the desired product on each end user's computer by connecting to the proper ClientInstaller folder. Please see "Client Setup" in the Readme file. If you want an automated install, please see Silent Install of Network Client Software.

Trusted Storage Licenses

(a) Refer to the document Palisade Concurrent Network Readme and complete Server Steps 1 through 5 for one product.  Do not perform the server install for the additional products.

(b) Contact Palisade Technical Support at tech-support@palisade.com to obtain client installers for the additional products.  Please mention all the serial numbers, and identify which one you have already installed.  When you have those client installers, put them in the ClientInstaller folder with the installer for the first product.

(c) For each additional product, extract TransferLicenses.bat and Request.bat from the ZIP file, rename them (perhaps with the serial number, TransferLicenses_serialnumber.bat and Request_serialnumber.bat), and place them in the folder with LMTools.  Use the renamed batch files to download the additional product licenses, just as you did in Server Step 2 for the first product.

(d) Repeat Server Step 3, and palserveractutil -view command will show all product licenses.

(e) The FLEXnet license process you established for the first product will manage all the Palisade licenses. To make this happen, open LMTools, and on the Start/Stop/Reread tab click Reread.

(f) Now you should be able to install the desired product on each end user's computer by connecting to the proper ClientInstaller folder. Please see "Client Setup" in the Readme file. If you want an automated install, please see Silent Install of Network Client Software.
