Removing an ANSYS client license using the ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility


Problem Description: You may need to free a license when a licensed user was running an ANSYS, Inc. product on a node that subsequently crashed. This situation will sometimes cause the license to become unusable.

Resolution: Free the license to allow the license to return to the pool of available licenses. Only those with FLEXlm administrative privileges (UNIX) or administrative privileges (Windows) can use this procedure because removing a user's license can be disruptive.

NOTE: This must be done on the license server machine.

Open the ANSLIC_ADMIN Utility and select "Remove a Client License".
