System ID for Node-Locked License

This system ID is only applicable if you are using the ADINA node-locked license. If you are using the ADINA floating license, please see the next section.

To obtain the system ID of the computer that will be used to run ADINA, you need to install the ADINA System on that computer first. The system ID is NOT the MAC address of the ethernet card, or the hard disk ID number, or the IP address of the computer; it is generated as follows:

For Windows® XP/Vista/7/8:
After you have installed the ADINA System, please run

Start > Programs > ADINA System N.n > Install Node-Locked License

Send the System ID to ADINA R & D to obtain the node-locked license password.


For Unix/Linux:
After you install the ADINA System, please run the adhostid program in the <ADINA home directory>

cd <ADINA home directory>
./adhostid

Send the System ID to ADINA R & D to obtain the node-locked license password.


System ID for Floating License Server

To obtain the system ID for the floating license server, you need to install the ADINA System on the license server computer first.

For Windows® XP/Vista/7/8:
Run the echoid.exe command using

Start > Programs > ADINA System N.n > Floating License > Run EchoID

Send the Lock Code 1 to ADINA R & D to obtain the floating license password.

The floating password file must be named lservrc and placed in the %ADINAHOME%\Sentinel directory.

After the password file lservrc is placed in the %ADINAHOME%\Sentinel directory, you can start the license manager using

Start > Programs > ADINA System N.n > Floating License > License Server


For Unix/Linux:
Run the echoid.exe command in the <ADINA home directory>/slm directory.

cd <ADINA home directory>/slm
./echoid

Send the Lock Code 1 to ADINA R & D to obtain the floating license password.

The floating password file must be named lservrc and placed in the <ADINA home directory>/slm directory.

After the password file lservrc is placed in the <ADINA home directory>/slm directory, you can start the license manager using the lserv command.

cd <ADINA home directory>/slm
./lserv

If you encounter problems running ADINA with the floating license, please see FAQ QI-004.
