- Obtaining Your License Files
Licensing components can either be installed on a separate, dedicated server or on a server they share with another application (for example, a backup data collector, farm metric server or terminal server license server). Alternatively, you can use a Web or application server; however, the locations mentioned below are less resource intensive. If you are running fewer than 50 servers, you can install the license server on the same server as your product.
When using the Msiexec command to install licensing, set properties by adding Property=“value” on the command line anywhere except between an option and its argument.
The following sample command line installs licensing in silent mode and creates a log file to capture information about this operation. Add the properties you want to set after the switches.
Type the command in one line without returns. The following example shows multiple lines due to space limitations.
msiexec /I ctx_licensing.msi /l*v install.log /qn INSTALLDIR=installdirectory LICSERVERPORT=portnumber VENDORDAEMONPORT=portnumber MNGMTCONSOLEWEBPORT=portnumber ADMINPASS=password
msiexec /I ctx_licensing.msi /qn
If you are installing in a clustered environment, use the two additional properties in this example:
msiexec /I ctx_licensing.msi /l*v install.log /qn LICSERVERPORT=portnumber VENDORDAEMONPORT=portnumber MNGMTCONSOLEWEBPORT=portnumber ADMINPASS=password CTX_CLUSTER_RESOURCE_DLL_PATH="c:\ctxlic\" REGISTER_CTX_LS_CLUSTERING="No"
