With the License Server, you can install and run your e-on applications* on any computer in your network. When you run one of your applications on a computer, the License Server will issue a temporary license for that application, to that computer**.
There is no distinction between nodelocked and floating licenses for e-on products that are compatible with the License Server*. A license automatically becomes floating as soon as it is installed on a License Server. There is no additional charge for the use of floating licenses (aside from the cost of purchasing and maintaining the License Server itself).
The E-on License Sever can be run as a service, thus avoiding the need to log onto a user account in order to launch it.
Using a License Server is the best option for those who:
- Need the flexibility of running their products on multiple seats without having to purchase a license for each seat.
- Need a centralized license registration and management process.
The License Server Works with:
VUE xStream, Infinite, Rendernodes and RenderCows
*Check product description for compatibility with the License Server. VUE RenderNodes require the License Server to operate.
**If all licenses you own for a given application have already been taken, you will have to exit the application on one of your computers before you can
use it on another. You cannot install the same license on a computer (nodelocked license) as well as on a License Server (floating license).
The E-on License Server is made of 2 components:
- The License Server Core that will handle all network access and will correspond with the applications requesting a license.
- The License Server Controller, which you can install on any machine on your network. This controller will allow you to manage all your licenses from anywhere. You don't even have to have the controller installed on the same system as the License Server Core.
