Issue Details

I have made some modifications to my FLEXnet Options File to add or remove users or groups to a certain product license and saved the options file, but these changes are not being reflected on my license server (users or groups still have access after being removed or don't have access after being added).


After saving the options file, you need to manually reread the options file and restarting the license server. Follow the steps below to reread the options file and restart the license server.
  1. Open LMTOOLS
  2. Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab.
  3. Click the ReRead License File button.
  4. Click the Stop Server button.
  5. Click the Start Server button.

After these steps, the changes made to the options file should be reflected in the license server.
