    OS to run cadence license manager Reply

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to use "RHEL Desktop" editon to run Cadence license manager and share the license with other computers on RHEL Desktop. Or does it exist a function in "RHEL server" edition that is indispensable to do this ? RHEL Server is much more expensive ... 

    Another solution is to use CentOS Server edition for the server and RHEL for the workstations ? Any idea ?

     Thanks

    Hi wighou

    Actually there are no specific requirements for running Cadence license daemons lmgrd and cdslmd. Any linux, solaris or windows machine would be fine.

    Best regards

    Thanks for your answer, Quek. So, I will install RHEL Desktop in all the workstations and use one of them to run the license manager.

    Oh, it is not so simple ...

    RedHat only sells licenses for 3 years in Brazil. So, the price is much more expensive ...

    So I am going to try with Suse. But in the list of supported OS, there is only SLES (server version of Suse). Do you know if SLED (desktop version) is supported too ?

    Hi wighou

    I am not sure but since it is just a linux variant, it should work too. If cost is a concern, perhaps you can consider centos.

    Hi Quek,

    Thanks for your answer

    Cost is a concern, support is a concern. I am trying to find the price the less expensive, keeping the support of Cadence. But to ask directly to Cadence support, I must have an account. To have this account, my installation has to be qualified ... So, it is a bit complicated.

    Best regards
