Issue Details

How does rebooting the NI Volume License Manager (VLM) server affect client machines?

Solution

Software running on client machines will not stop if the VLM server is rebooted, so clients currently working with the software will not be affected. 

Additional Information

  • The server is only pinged when the client is activating software.
  • If the VLM server is changed and rebooted, clients will re-ping the updated server next time they open the software.
