EcoStruxure Building Operation Software License Distribution and Selection

EcoStruxure Building Operation software licenses are distributed and selected from License Server.

EcoStruxure Building Operation Software License Distribution

EcoStruxure Building Operation software licenses are distributed from License Server. License Server shares a predetermined number of simultaneous instances that are available network-wide. To start licensed clients and EcoStruxure BMS servers using EcoStruxure Building Operation software licenses, the ​required number of licenses have to be ​available on the License Server.

An EcoStruxure Building Operation software license is activated on a License Server and can be used by any computer in the network.

To activate an EcoStruxure Building Operation software license from a License Server, you have to define the License Server address where EcoStruxure Building Operation Software licenses are available. You define the address to License Server when installing the licensed product. You edit the License Server address in License Administrator on the computer or EcoStruxure BMS server that hosts the licensed product.

A activated license is not physically moved to the client or EcoStruxure BMS server. The activated license is allocated in License Server until the license is returned by the client or EcoStruxure BMS server.

When a licensed WorkStation, Enterprise Server, or client tool starts and no demo license is activated, WorkStation or Enterprise Server searches License Server for an available license. If an available license is found, the licensed product activates the license and starts. If no licenses are available, the licensed product does not start. When the application is closed, the license is returned to the License Server.

Note:
  • On the EcoStruxure BMS server running both License Server and Enterprise Server, use the address @localhost so the Enterprise Server does not connect to the License Server through the network.

EcoStruxure Building Operation Software License Selection

When a licensed WorkStation, WebStation, client tool, Enterprise Server or Enterprise Central starts, it first checks if a demo license is available. If a demo license is not available or has expired, the WorkStation, Enterprise Server, or Enterprise Central activates a EcoStruxure Building Operation Software license from a License Server. If no license is available, the WorkStation, client tool, Enterprise Server, or Enterprise Central does not start.
