The licensing software is automatically installed on the host machine when OpenSplice is installed. The licensing software comes in two parts>
- The binary files which are normally found in the bin directory of the installation
The license file which controls which products and features are licensed. This is supplied separately by ZettaScale
To license the product the license should have the extension .lic.
- For OpenSplice the license file should be copied into the /etc/ directory. is the directory where OpenSplice is installed.
These are the recommended locations for the license file but you can put the file in any location that can be accessed by the license manager rlm.
If another location is used or the environment has not been setup, then an environment variable, either RLM_LICENSE or or ZETTASCALE_LICENSE for v7 (or ADLINK_LICENSE for v6) , must be set to the full path and filename of the license file (either variable can be set; there is no need to set both). For example: ZETTASCALE_LICENSE=/my/lic/dir/license.lic
If licenses are distributed between multiple license files, the RLM_LICENSE or ZETTASCALE_LICENSE for v7 (or ADLINK_LICENSE for v6) variable can be set to point to the directory which contains the license files.
