Important: When the installation is complete, ensure that the Windows PATH contains the MATLAB® program directory so that the MATLAB link can be enabled.

Windows Network Licensing

Select one of the following licensing schemes.

Maple 9 Only

The FLEXlm/Windows directory, installed in the Maple 9 folder and on the Maple 9 CD, contains a directory for each platform. These directories contain license manager daemons (lmgrd and maplelmg) required to run Maple, as well as utilities to assist you in installing and configuring FLEXlm™ for your system.

Requirements
You will require a network license file, called maple9.lic. If you do not already have this file, visit http://register.maplesoft.com/ and follow the instructions. Maplesoft will email the license file. If you do not have access to the Internet or email, contact your Maplesoft sales representative at 1.800.267.6583. When you receive the network license file, save it in a temporary, accessible location.

Complete the following tasks.

Task 1: Configure the License Files

To configure the license files on a Windows Network Server.

  1. From the FLEXlm/Windows folder, double-click Network_License_Installer.exe.
  2. In the new license file field of the Maple Network License Installer dialog box, enter or browse for the name and location of the network license file (by default, maple9.lic) that you received from Maplesoft.
  3. Enter the Server Name in the Name field. You can use a host name or an IP Address.
  4. In the Destination and name of license file field, enter or browse for the location and filename under which to save the license file. (C:\Program Files\Maple 9\FLEXlm\Windows\maple9.lic is recommended).
  5. Click OK.

The network license file is copied to the specified location. The network license file and the license.dat file in the License folder are configured with the appropriate server name.

Note: You can use the Network License Installer to change the name of your server (for example, if you move Maple to a new server). In this case, the new license file and the Destination and name of license file would be the same. You can also use Network License Installer to update your license file should Maplesoft send you a new one. In this case, the new license file would be the new one that Maplesoft sends and the Destination would be the path and filename where the existing license file is located.

Task 2: Start the License Manager Daemons

If you intend to use a Novell® server, see Novell Networks.

Requirements
For the following instructions, you require the lmtools executable, located in the FLEXlm/Windows folder in your Maple folder. If the FLEXlm/Windows folder is not already on the license manager server, copy it from the Maple folder or the Maple 9 CD.

To set up and start the license manager daemons on a Windows Network Server:

  1. Double-click lmtools.exe.
  2. Under the Service/License File tab, click Configuration using Services.
  3. Click the Config Services tab.

Novell Networks

FLEXlm does not run on Novell or IPX/SPX. Follow these instructions to install the license manager on any network that is exclusively a Novell environment.
  1. Install TCP/IP on all client machines.
  2. Select a Windows computer that has TCP/IP installed to act as a license server and run the license daemons on it.

Alternative Installation

The supported network installation has Maple installed on a server, with client machines accessing Maple through shortcuts. Activating Maple from a client machine loads the Maple executable into the memory of the client machine. Network speed is generally an issue only when functions are accessed for the first time in a given session.

If network speed is a limiting factor, you can install Maple on each computer in the network and manage the license centrally through the license manager server. If you use this approach, you must use the Windows Network Licensing on each client machine so that the user profiles are created properly. Use the same server name for each client. Because this installation is not standard, you must configure the license files manually. For more information and assistance, contact technical support at support@maplesoft.com.

UNIX Network Installation

To install Maple 9 on your Windows Network operating systems, read and complete the following tasks.

Pre-installation Instructions

  1. Ensure you have appropriate read and write privileges.
  2. Ensure that your system recognizes Rock Ridge extensions.
  3. If you are installing Maple for the first time, go to UNIX Installation and Linux Multi-user Installation. Otherwise, proceed to Stop the License Manager Daemons.

Stop the License Manager Daemons

Important: If this is a first time installation, proceed to UNIX Installation and Linux Multi-user Installation.
  1. Change directory to where the license manager is currently running.
  2. At the prompt, enter lmdown_path -c /network.lic_path where lmdown_path is the full path and filename to the FLEXlm utility called lmdown and network.lic_path is the full path and filename to the network.lic license file that is being used.
  3. If the network.lic license file and Maple were installed in the default locations, the license file is located in the /usr/local/maple/FLEXlm directory.

Install the UNIX Multi-user Version(s)

  1. Log on to the account that will own the Maple files. This is usually the root account.
  2. Mount the Maple 9 CD-ROM.
  3. Run installMaple from the root directory of the CD. To run the installer in console mode, use the -i console option.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions. Maple 9 is installed.

Select Network Licensing

If the license server is to be run in UNIX or Linux, follow the instructions in:

If the license server is to be run in Windows, follow the instructions in:

Important: When the installation is complete, review the scripts in the bin directory and edit where necessary to configure Maple. For example, you must edit the script to enable the MATLAB link. The scripts contain comments to guide you.

UNIX Network Licensing

Select one of the following licensing schemes.

Maple 9 Only

Complete the following tasks.

Task 1: Install the License File

The licenses can be served from any supported platform on the network. If you intend to serve licenses from Windows, see Windows Network Licensing.

Requirements
You will require a network license file, called maple9.lic. If you do not already have this file, visit http://register.maplesoft.com/ and follow the instructions. Maplesoft will email the license file. If you do not have access to the Internet or to email, contact your Maplesoft sales representative at 1. 800. 2670. 6583. When you receive the network license file, save it in a temporary, accessible location.

To configure the license file:
  1. From the FLEXlm\UNIX directory, run the INSTALL_LIC script.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions

Note: You can use the INSTALL_LIC script to change the name of your server (for example, if you move Maple to a new server). In this case, answer each question by pointing to the same license file. You can also use the INSTALL_LIC script to update your license file should Maplesoft send you a new one. In this case, the new license file would be the one that Maplesoft sends and the directory in which to store the file would be the path and filename where the existing license file is located.

Task 2: Start the License Manager Daemons

Before you can use Maple 9, you must start the license server.  It is recommended that you do not run lmgrd as root since any process run by root is a potential security risk.

Using the C Shell
If you are running in the C shell, enter the following command at the prompt to start the license manager daemon (lmgrd):

lmgrd_path -c license_file_path -l debug_log &

where lmgrd_path is the full filename and path of lmgrd; license_file_path is the full filename and path of the network license file (by default, /usr/local/maple/FLEXlm/maple9.lic); and debug_log is the name of a file to which debugging information is written. This command creates the file. The option used is the letter l, not the number 1 (one).

Running the License Manager
If Maple was installed in the default location and you are running the license manager on a Linux system, enter the following command at the prompt to start the license manager daemon.

/usr/local/maple/FLEXlm/UNIX/LINUX/lmgrd -c /usr/local/maple/FLEXlm/maple9.lic -l /usr/local/maple/FLEXlm/logfile 

Using the Korn or Bourne Shell
If you are using either the Korn or Bourne shell, enter the following command at the prompt.

nohup lmgrd_path -c license_file_path -l debug_log 2>&1 &
Daemons Run on Startup
To have the daemons run on startup, edit the appropriate boot script (such as /etc/rc.boot, /etc/rc.local, or /etc/rc2.d/Sxxxx). For example, if you run lmgrd as a boot startup script, you can run it as a regular user by using the following su command at the prompt:

su username -c 'umask 022; path/lmgrd -c path/license_file -l path/log'

where username is a nonprivileged user; path is the correct path to lmgrd, network license file, and the debug log file; and license_file is the network license file. It is recommended that the network license file be called maple9.lic.

Help For Starting License Server
If you have any problems starting the license server in the UNIX system bootup files, refer to the FLEXlm FAQs at http://www.macrovision.com/solutions/esd/flexlm/enduser_faq.htm.
