How do you customize timeout in Concurrent Licenses?

0

Please make sure that you have installed at last Mestrelab License Server 2.2.0 on your server machine and that all the users are running the lastest Mnova version on their computers.

Instructions for Windows Servers

Run ‘regedit’ from the Windows Start menu.

Navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SoftwareMestrelab Research S.L.M\LicAdmin\Settings\ReleasePolicyButtonShown

And replace False with True, as you can see in the picture below:

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button (red square in the picture below) to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value* = 30 minutes).

If you check the box 2 minutes warning, the user will get a warning message telling that the session will be closed in 2 minutes.


*You can entry a TimeOut of 10 minutes, but in this case, after following the steps described above, you will need to create a new registry entry (type DWORD32) called ‘MinTimeout’ and once there, customize the value for 10 min.

If your OS is a 32 bit, you will need to create the MinTimeout registry here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mestrelab Research S.L.\MLicServer\Settings\ReleasePolicy

If it is 64 bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mestrelab Research S.L.\MLicServer\Settings\ReleasePolicy

Then you also need to edit the ‘Timeout’ entry to 10 (if this Timeout entry has a value higher or equal to 30, the MinTimeout will not give any effect).

Finally restart the server.

After that, if you go to MLicAdmin/Release Policy you can see that the Idle timeout is already 10 min.

Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.

Instructions for Mac Servers

From the User’s Home directory (or from a Terminal), please open the file located in: Library/Preferences/com.mestrelab.MLicAdmin.plist

And change the property Settings.ReleasePolicyButtonShown from ‘N’o to ‘Yes’, as you can see in the picture below:

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value = 30 minutes). You can also select a Timeout of 10 minutes, but in this case you would need to edit (by using PreffSetter, for example) the file com.mestrelab-research-s-l.MLicServer which is in System Preferences. Once there create a new key (Integer class) called Settings.ReleasePolicy.MinTimeout with the value of 10.

Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.

Instructions for Linux Servers

From terminal type: /root/.config/Mestrelab Research S.L./MLicAdmin.conf Replace the line: ReleasePolicyButtonShown=false with ReleasePolicyButtonShown=true

For example:

[Settings]
ReleasePolicyButtonShown=true
TablesState=@ByteArray(bx15x1&x8ex8eYxe8g.ax15x1&x8ex8eY xe8g) WindowState=@ByteArray(xe9xc1x4xbfx3W)

Then, run MlicAdmin and click on the Release Policy button to display the Idle Release Policy dialog box, where you will be able to select the desired Timeout (Minimum value = 30 minutes). If you need to select a minimum value for the Timeout below 30 mins, please edit this file: /etc/xdg/Mestrelab Research S.L./MLicServer.conf and add to the “[Settings]” section the line: ReleasePolicyMinTimeout=10 Finally save the changes and restart MlicServer.
