We have 5 licenses that are being shared by 10 different people.
The timeout setting is too short, how do I increase the time so people don't lose the license when they are idle for a few minutes?
I use "older" version of FLEXnet (10.8.x) on license server in combination with Creo Parametric 2.0 on client machines. I installed it using ProE WF5 installation package. The installation created FLEXlm server for PTC service. The service starts two lmgrd.exe and one ptc_d.exe processes.
This file must contain line similar to this...
DAEMON ptc_d D:\PTC\flexnet\x86e_win64\obj\ptc_d.exe D:\PTC\flexnet\licensing\ptc.opt
This file contains the following line (by default):
This means that all licenses have the timeout 7200 seconds. Default minimum is 1200 s (it is not allowed to set lower value).
can i ask you if setting timeout works for both license (for example Creo Parametric) and extensions (for example PIPING)? i mean, if an extension goes timeout will it be possible to obtain again?
Regain of license depends on availability. If a license returns to server due to timeout and if that license consumed by other user, there will not be any license available for first user.
TIMEOUTALL option is common for all floating licenses and floating options available in license file. Extensions like Mechanism Design (code 127) in old Creo packages are locked to Creo license. Therefore TIMEOUTALL is not applied on them.
