This is regarding NX 11...I tried installing a node lock license at one of my customer place of NX10 with NX 11 lic file which is of Node lock but where they were already working on a floating license on nx 9 getting the lic from server and when i tried to edit the SPLM_LICENSE_SERVER VARIABLE to the node lock license file location which is at C:\Siemens folder even after doing that NX is not working .. i checked in licensing tool option in nx 10 where the env setting option when i'm changing my previous 28000@Server name to my node lock lic file location still it is unable to take the lic file and showing -1004 error cant cannot to lic file..basically it is not pointing to the specified file location..

In this case what am I supposed to do?? Any suggestions

what should be in env variable settings 
?? how to make this work and i've checked the host id is matching with that particular system


But as soon as i change my variable to previous server location to 28000@Server name it is working fine on NX9 but nx 10 it is not taking the fileNX LIC FILE.JPG

Set the Windows environment variable SPLM_LICENSE_SERVER=C:\path.....\ourLicenseFileName.extension

 

Usually the license file is either linked to a CID or to a DONGLE. Make sure these are correct.

Thanks for you reply sir.

 

 

  yes it's connected to the host id of the system and both were matching..but i dont know why its not working..

The value MUST BE C:\PATH\COMPLETEFILENAMEwhitEXTENSION (usually ugnx11.txt or ugslmd.lic) not 28000@xxxxx

The other thing with licensing... If you use Siemen's licensing utility (e.g. to set bundle), it sets it in the registry, and if the registry value EXISTS (even if blank), NX ignores the ENV variable. (grumble grumble...)

 

Not sure if it does the same thing with SPLM_LICENSE_SERVER, but you might want to search the registry to see if the value ("28000@yourserver", or whatever) exists somewhere....and if it does, delete it.
