How can I know "which license/bundle works" ?

Creator

I registered 3 licenses (ip address) and 2 bundles.

 

And when I am using NX, I want to know 'which license/bundle works now'

 

How can I do that?

Hello Joooon,

 

if you have a look at the log file of the license daemon (splm_ugslmd.log) you can monitor your license activity. Another way to check which license is used right now is to run the script "lmutil lmstat -A" in a command prompt (you need to execute this in the directory where you have installed the license daemon).

 

Kind regards,

Wolfgang

Thank you very much

but I can't find the log file 'splm_ugslmd.log' and I tried to search this file with windows searching function but there is not this file

 

Also, I don't know where I've installed the license daemon.

 

in 'C:\SCAD\NX110' ,  there are many folders

but I don't know where is license folder or log file about license..

splm license log is on the location of the license server (LM tools)

 

What kind of license do you have?

Hello Joooon,

 

maybe your license daemon (Siemens PLM License Server) is installed on a different system? When you open the Licensing Tool (Windows Start => all Programs => Siemens NX 11.0 => Licensing Tools => Licensing Tool) and select "Environment settings". Does the entry for "license server point" to a server (default 28000@SERVERNAME) or to a file? If it points to a server this is the system where the license daemon is installed (default for this: C:\program files\Siemens\PLMLicenseServer).

 

Kind regards,

Wolfgang

If you set the environment variable UGS_LICENSING_NOTE=ON your NX log file will output information related to your use of licenses. Is that what you're looking for?

Yes that's right.

License server is on other system.

 

in this case, can't  I check my license working in my computer?

Depend on exactly what you are looking for.

If you can map NX license feature names -> functionality:

(Windows)

Start manu -> Siemens NX (version) -> Licesning tool

Environment settings -> shows what license server you are pointing at (assuming something isn't changing this as you start NX)

Bundle settings -> Pick one from the "available bundles" column -> List in lower right shows license feature names:

NOTE:

I would NOT use this to set what bundle I use in NX (it tends to be very "Permanent", e.g. it will cause the ENV "UGS_LICENSE_BUNDLE" to be ignored)

Instead,

- open NX,

- open part,

- Application -> Gateway

- File -> Utilities -> Select Bundle

- select the desired bundle, and OK

 

Unfortunately (at least in NX10) the "select bundle" dialog doesn't show the features of the bundle (just the name/description)

I've not previously been aware of this environment variable UGS_LICENSING_NOTE=ON... I'm trying it right now. What new information should I be seeing in my NX log file with this set? I'm not seeing anything about bundle or license usage reported as I change applications, for instance.
