Reprise Options File and Report Log Creation

Abstract

Reprise Licensing controls reporting of license usage through a defined options file. The report log generated from the parameters set in the options file contains information that is critical to the sales and support of our software licenses. The steps below define how implementers set up the options file, thus producing the report log.

CRITICAL: This process should be performed at the same time the license files are activated.

Procedure

Creating the report log

To ensure that the report log meets Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure requirements these steps should be followed precisely on each license server, primary and failover:

  1. Create the options file

    1. Open NotePad

    2. Copy and paste the bolded text below into NotePad

      REPORTLOG +C:\ProgramData\Intergraph\Licensing\server\CustomerName_ServerName.rpt detailed ROTATE monthly

      Ex. Hexagon_cad94lic for the primary license server
      +C:\ProgramData\Intergraph\Licensing\server\Hexagon_cad94lic.rpt detailed ROTATE monthly

      Ex. Hexagon_cad94licfailover for the failover license server
      +C:\ProgramData\Intergraph\Licensing\server\Hexagon_cad94licfailover.rpt detailed ROTATE monthly

    3. File>>Save As

    4. Change Save as type from .txt to All Files

    5. The file name must be intergraph.opt

      1. There can be absolutely no variation here.

    6. Using the Windows Explorer window, locate the directory C:\ProgramData\Intergraph\Licensing\server and select it as the location to save.

  2. The options file is in place. Any action on the license server that causes a reread of this directory will activate the options file, thus creating the report log.

  3. The options file and report log must remain in the directory. Moving either will cause loss of data.

Per the amended EULA, a copy of the report log and/or options file from each server may be requested no more than 4 times annually by Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure for license usage review.
