Using a license file on a new license server
Our actual license server is running on an old operating system version.
So we decided to create a new license server, running on RHEL 8.3.
My question is about the license file, as it is “configured” for the old license server.
Do you think I just can replace the MAC address written on the head of the license file by the one from the new license server?
SERVER this_host xxx
SERVER this_host yyy
From the documentation Getting-Licenses-from-Ansys-Licensing-Portal.pdf , there is a chapter that looks promising (Rehosting a License File). I'm not sure I have to enter all fields (Host Name, Host ID)?
And what about Host ID Type? There are three options (DISK_SERIAL_NUM, ETHERNET & FLEXID). What are these? (I guess I have to use ETHERNET in my case).
What means borrowable (from the Licensing Portal – Activate Entitlements)?
Last question, will I be able to use the latest Ansys Lumerical FDTD with this new license file/server as the actual license ends the 28th of September?
Thank you for your help.
