As an account manager, how do I update a Snapgene Flexnet license server with a new Vendor Daemon License file?
If your Snapgene shared license "seat" number, expiration date or server address are revised by a SnapGene representative then a new Vendor Daemon License file will be generated. Your license server must be updated with the new file for the changes to take effect.
Request the vendor daemon file from your SnapGenes sales team contact, or else contact firstname.lastname@example.org, provide details of your shared (floating) license key, and we will provide a vendor daemon license file for use with your Flexnet license server.
Log In to your Flexnet License Server
Once your receive an updated "vendor daemon license" file, log in to the SnapGene license web server using http://server_address:8090, where server_address is the license server IP address or hostname. If you are on the license server computer use http://localhost:8090.
Switch to the Administration panel to log in.
Load the Vendor Daemon License File
If required, select the "Vendor Daemon Configuration" tab, then click the Import License button.
Click the Choose File button to locate and load the new "Vendor_Daemon_License.lic" file.
Check the option to "Overwrite License File on License Server".
Click the Import License button to load the license.
You should be notified that the license server was successfully updated with the new license file.
The new license will now be used to administer all connecting SnapGene clients using the shared license.
Note that SnapGene clients obtain the revised license details by checking into a License server at snapgene.com. SnapGene checks in to this license server once a day, so it may take up to one day for SnapGene to obtain the revised license details.
To get the revised license details immediately, click SnapGene menu Help → Check for Updates.
