Issue Details

  • I am a VLM administrator and cannot be granted administrator privileges on my computer. Can I configure Volume License Manager without having to request Windows administrator rights?
  • Is there a way to remotely configure and administrate licences for local machines on the server without administrator rights?¬†

Solution

NI VLM can only be configured by a user with administrator rights. Regardless of the fact you are the VLM adminitrator, your access will be denied if you are not running NI VLM as a Windows administrator.
