I have just installed the “Floating License Server”, based on Floating_License_Server_Linux_NoInstall_2_3_20070801.tar.gz on a Linux RH ES 4 system. The following points were noted:
====== 1 =======
The JRE delivered with the tarball may not be complete.
Running TestAdminEmail.sh, i.e.
…/jre/bin/java -cp “…/lib/licenseserver.jar:…/lib/smtp.jar:…/lib/activation.jar:…/lib/mailapi.jar:” LicenseServer adminemail &
results in a JRE error indicating that some things may be missing:
When I use another JRE (installed on the system earlier), things work.
====== 2 =======
TestAdminEmail.sh takes a long time (10s) to finish. Normal?
====== 3 =======
vpLicenseServerConfig.xml has more options than described in the “Visual Paradigm License Server User’s Guide”. A slight update of the documentation is needed.
====== 4 =======
A possible extension of the server would be a parameter to tell it to bind to a single IP address of the machine instead of the default “any”. This is useful if the machine has several IP addresses.
