VSNi Licence Server

Please note: that the installation and configuration of this software requires a high degree of expertise and administrative privilege and is expected to be undertaken by a member of your IT or Network support team.

Conditions – Virtual Environments

Any user wishing to install the VSNi Licence Server to support floating (concurrent networked) licences must observe the following condition:  Use of our software within a virtual environment will only be permitted if the VSNi Licence Server is installed on a PHYSICAL (i.e. NOT virtual) machine.  The virtual machines will need to communicate with the physical server to obtain a licence.  We are currently testing virtual and cloud entitlements with our software, but these are not available yet.  Please contact sales@vsni.co.uk to discuss specific requirements.

Requirements to run the VSNi Licence Server

The VSNi Licence Server supports Debian and Redhat 64-bit architecture for LINUX.

The target operating system requires <3.0 version of ‘LSB’ component to be installed.  Availability of this LSB component will, in the majority of cases, ensure that other necessary system-level libraries are available.  See LSB Support for more information.
