The licenseserver command registers DiffDog Server with the Altova LicenseServer specified by the Server-Or-IP-Address argument. For the licenseserver command to be executed successfully, the two servers (DiffDog Server and LicenseServer) must be on the same network and LicenseServer must be running. You must also have administrator privileges in order to register DiffDog Server with LicenseServer.
diffdogserver licenseserver Server-Or-IP-Address
•The Server-Or-IP-Address argument takes the name or IP address of the LicenseServer machine.
•To request an evaluation license for DiffDog Server, submit appropriate values for the --company, --email, and --name options. To request an evaluation license for an additional Altova product (that is, in addition to DiffDog Server), add the --request-eval-license option with a value that is the name of that product. See the list of options below for more information.
Once DiffDog Server has been successfully registered with LicenseServer, you will receive a message to this effect. The message will also display the URL of the LicenseServer. You can now go to LicenseServer to assign DiffDog Server a license. For details about licensing, see the LicenseServer documentation (https://www.altova.com/manual/AltovaLicenseServer/).
Examples of the licenseserver command:
diffdogserver licenseserver DOC.altova.com
diffdogserver licenseserver localhost
diffdogserver licenseserver 127.0.0.1
The commands above specify, respectively, the machine named DOC.altova.com, and the user's machine (localhost and 127.0.0.1) as the machine running Altova LicenseServer. In each case, the command registers DiffDog Server with the LicenseServer on the machine specified. The last command calls the server-executable to execute the command.
