The IP Address on my v8 (or older) NLO server changed. Do I need new license files?

Question: My IP Address on my server changed but not the MAC address. Do I need new license files?

Answer: No. You can edit the Gibbs license files to account for this change.

To update the server:

  • Launch LMTools.exe
  • Set it to 'Configuration Using Services'
  • Select the Start/Stop/Reread tab
  • Click 'Stop Server'
  • Close LMTools.exe
  • Go to c:/flexlm/gibbs
  • Double-click Gibbs.dat. If prompted open the file with Wordpad
  • Modify your IP address as desired
  • Go to File-->Save As and save the file as gibbs1.dat
  • Close Wordpad
  • Delete Gibbs.dat
  • Rename gibbs1.dat to gibbs.dat
  • Launch LMTools.exe
  • Set it to 'Configuration Using Services'
  • Select the Start/Stop/Reread tab
  • Click 'Start Server'

To update each client:

  • Copy the edited gibbs.dat file created on the server to a floppy, thumb driver or shared network location
  • Go to c:/flexlm/gibbs
  • Replace gibbs.dat with the newly edited version.
