When upgrading from an earlier installed version of the CLC Network License Manager or CLC License Server, the general steps are:
- Stop the running license manager process.
- Install the new CLC Network License Manager in a new location, following the installation instructions for the relevant platform.
- Install the licenses, following the instructions for downloading license files for the relevant platform.
Alternatively copy the old license files, usually this is from within the
licensesfolder of the old installation area, into the
licensesfolder of the new installation.
If upgrading the CLC Network License Manager around the time of a major release of the CLC analysis software, we recommend downloading new license files.
- If you have customized the
licenseserver.cfgfile in the older installation, then either copy that file into the installation area of the new CLC Network License Manager or edit the new
licenseserver.cfgfile as needed.
When upgrading fromCLC License Server 3.6.1, we recommend that you read and keep a copy of the new
licenseserver.cfgfile as it contains more information about possible configurations than earlier versions of that file. This file has not changed in format between CLC License Server 4.0 and CLC Network License Manager 5.0.
- If you were previously running the CLC Network License Manager (or CLC License Server) as a service, check that the service configuration is correct.
When upgrading on Linux: If the service is configured under SystemV, check that the clclicsrv script under /etc/init.d has the correct information for the upgraded installation. If changing from using SystemV to systemd for handling the CLC Network License Manager service, ensure that you remove any earlier SystemV configuration files from /etc/init.d.
- Start up the new CLC Network License Manager following the instructions given for the relevant platform.
Troubleshooting note when upgrading mac installations If the CLC Network License Manager service does not start up as expected on a mac after upgrading from CLC License Server 4.0 to CLC Network License Manager 5.0, check that
/usr/local/lib is a folder. If you find it is not, for example, if it is a symbolic link to
liblmxvendor.dylib in the CLC License Server 4.0 installation, remove that file/symbolic link and rerun the
installservice script in the installation area of the CLC Network License Manager, e.g. at
