Managing a Floating License
How do I access reports on how the employees are using the Floating License?
Log into the License Manager (ExtendSimLicServer) on the Server:
• Open a browser on the Server and enter localhost:5054 in the browser’s address line.
• Or, open a browser on some other device that is on the same network as the Server and enter servername:5054
in the browser’s address line.
Can we have a Network License of ExtendSim 9 as well as its upgrade, a Floating License of 10, running concurrently?
Absolutely. In fact, you will need both during the transition period while you convert your  les from 9 to 10. The transition period should not exceed six (6) months. Deployment of the software after that period shall not exceed the licensed quantity of ExtendSim 10.
What happens after we renew the annual Maintenance & Support Plan (MSP) or change the number of concurrent users?
The license  le (extendsim.lic) on the License Server needs to be updated and reactivated whenever there is this
type of change to the license. After we notify you that the change has been made and the license has been updated, you will need to reactivate the License Manager. However, you do not need to send new license  les to Client devices. The License Manager automatically updates the license  les on Client devices. See the document titled Reactivating • Floating Licenses.
