You can create option files for one or more servers and manage network licenses through those files.If you don’t need the capabilities of the options file, you don't have to create options files for all servers.
If your options file defines controls based on product features, the controls apply to products whether you are on a maintenance plan or multi-user subscription.However, if you define controls at the product package level, you can separate maintenance plan seats from multi-user subscriptions.
To activate an options file, save it and then reread the license file.
- Open a text editor, such as Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (macOS). Enter the commands and parameters as specified for the report log or other operations.
- Name the file adskflex.opt and save it where you saved the network license file.
Note: Be sure to save the file with the extension .opt. NLM does not recognize .txt.
- Reread the license file on the server.
- Check the log file to be sure that the options file has been read. If it wasn’t, stop and restart the license server.
Here are some common controls that you can configure using an options file.
