Floating Licenses and Next Limit RLM Licensing

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Maxwell Studio and Realflow both use RLM for their licensing system. Here is a guide to installing a HDR Light Studio license with RLM for Maxwell Studio or Realflow already installed
 
Using the existing RLM installation
If there is an instance of RLM already set up to administer licenses for Maxwell Studio or Realflow then it is not necessary to install a new instance of RLM exclusively for HDR Light Studio.
 
In order to add the HDR Light Studio floating license to an existing Server, download the lightmap.set ISV file from this page - www.lightmap.co.uk/downloads and add the ISV and the Floating License File to the directory that RLM is installed to and restart RLM.
 
To restart RLM after adding the ISV file. Open an internet browser on the Server machine and type in localhost:5054 into the address bar, this will bring up the RLM webhost.
 
Use the ReRead/Restart Servers option on the webhost menu to restart RLM with the lightmap.set ISV file along with the existing licenses for Maxwell or Realflow.

 
Installing a new instance of RLM for HDR Light Studio
If necessary, a new instance of RLM can be installed to run alongside the existing RLM License Server.
 
Once RLM has been installed and the HDR Light Studio License File and lightmap.set ISV have been moved into the RLM directory. If the original instance of RLM is using port 5053 then this second instance must be configured to use a different port to avoid a conflict. This can be done by editing the license file.
 
To edit the license file, open an internet browser on the Server machine and type in localhost:5054 into the address bar, this will bring up the RLM webhost. Use the Edit License Files option in the left hand menu and edit each License File in turn. The top line of your license file will look something like this;
 
HOST licenseServerName 84578h25d361 5053
 
The rightmost number, 5053 is the default port RLM is set to use, change this number to one that is not being used by another program. Do not attempt to edit anything else in the license file as this can break the license file completely. Save the license and then use the ReRead/Restart Servers option on the menu to restart the lightmap ISV in order to pick up the changes in the license file.
