    Hi,

    Follow the steps.

    Setting Up a License Server System and Client Systems

    Use

    Use this procedure to install the required license keys and set the profile parameters for operating the license server system.

    Procedure

    ...

    1.      Set the following profile parameters if they have not already been set.

    Profile Parameters for Configuring a License Server System Group

    Name

    System

    Description

    rdisp/mshost

    Client system for a license server

    Host name of the message server that is used for the virtual host name. NI functions determine the corresponding virtual IP address.

    slic/serverhost

    Client system for a license server

    Host name of the license server system (if this parameter is not set, the system assumes that it should not connect to a license server system.)

    slic/serverport

    License Server System

    Client system for a license server

    Specifies the port of the license server system. You can specify the port directly as a number or using a network service. If you do not specify this parameter, the default value saplicense is used. If you configure this service using DNS or NIS, and distribute it to your servers, you do not need to maintain this profile parameter in the profile of each system.

    slic/buffer_entries_dig_sig

    Client system for a license server

    License Server System

    Number of license key buffer entries that are managed by the library for digitally signed license keys.

    Number of buffer entries for client systems. These buffer entries exist only in the license server system.

    slic/activate_server

    Instance profile of the license server system

    Notifies the server that it is a license server system and activates this

    2.      Import the license key into the license server system with the software product LICENSE-SERVER_<DB>. To do this, in transaction SLICENSE in the license server system, choose the tab page Digitally-Signed Licenses ® Install (see Installing Permanent (Fixed Period) SAP Licenses).

    You also require the license key NetWeaver_<DB> for the license server system, which you install in the same way.

    3.      Import the license key for each client system for a license server using the relevant software product NetWeaver_<DB>. To do this, in transaction SLICENSE in the license server system, choose the tab page Digitally-Signed Licenses ® Install (see Installing Permanent (Fixed Period) SAP Licenses).

    These license keys are valid only for this license server system, since they are based on the system number of the license server system.

    Result

    You have set up the license server system landscape. Start the license server system and then the client systems.

    hi,

    try this,

    http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-46600

    A small change in it, instead of "renew maintenance certificate" click on "request license key"

    everything else is same.

    Rg,

    Nag

    thank's for a lot of informations. My problem is, that i don't want to install a SAP License but install a SAP-LICENSE-SERVER-SYSTEM (see picture below). Theres no install guide for these product in the SAP-help-portal. Only a product-information: LICENSE_SERVER_<DB>. Where can i find this product and more informations? Looking forward for help.

    Best regards,

    Dear Mr Scheider,

    We are planning to implement Flexible Licensing server. Our new environment is Cloud-based (VMWare) and would like to implement flexible licensing so that the license is ok if the virtual machine moves within a cluster.

    If you have implemented this successfully, can you please share the details? We searched in SAP Help and SCN and this discussion is the closest to clarifying our queries.

    We have referred these links - http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_05/helpdata/en/20/384ef6bd054d5aae1ddd6f67e07a9e/content.htm?frameset=/en/bf/85cc7edad811d3ace80000e83539c3/frameset.htm

    Setting Up the Flexible License Mechanism - SAP Licensing Procedure - SAP Library

    The main confusion we have is how to install the licensing server (is it on a separate NW) and how to link all satellite systems.

    Thanks,
