Command line installation of the license file

License file installation using Terminal in Linux and macOS.

  1. Open Terminal

  2. Ensure that the new license file has a different from the current license file. This will prevent overwriting of the current license when installing a renewal license.

  3. Copy the license file that you received into the FlexLM licenses/LUMERICL (default) installation folder.

    sudo cp /<path_of_licensefile>/<unique_name_of_licensefile>.lic  /opt/lumerical/lumerical-flexlm/licenses/LUMERICL/
    
  4. Change ownership of the license file to lumlmadmin so that the Lumerical FlexLM can access the file.

    sudo chown lumlmadmin /opt/lumerical/lumerical-flexlm/licenses/LUMERICL/*.lic
    
  5. Re-read the license file or Restart FlexLM to apply the new license file.
