Connect Tekla Structures to the license server
Connect Tekla Structures to the license server. This is phase 4 in the workflow Taking Tekla Structures licenses into use.
If you installed the license server on the same computer with Tekla Structures and successfully activated your license, the license is reserved automatically without any further action. The license server is always running in the background as a Windows service under the name Tekla Licensing Service.
If the license server is installed on a different computer, you must tell Tekla Structures the name of the license server computer in your internal network so that your computer can contact the license server computer.
To connect Tekla Structures to the license server when you start Tekla Structures for the first time:
Start Tekla Structures.
To connect Tekla Structures to the license server, enter the port@hostname information in the licensing dialog box, for example 27007@HOST_NAME.
The host name and port must correspond with the host name and port found in the tekla.lic file on the server computer located at ..\Tekla\License\Server. The license server administrator informs users about the license server name and port number.
If there is more than one license server available with activated licenses, you can define a primary and a secondary server in the licensing dialog box by separating the servers with a semicolon as follows: 27007@HOST_NAME_1;27007@HOST_NAME_2
Click OK to start Tekla Structures.
