Altova DiffDog Server 2022 

This topic describes how to start Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and DiffDog Server. You must have administrator (root) privileges to be able to start these programs, so you should run these commands as the root user. If you are logged in as root, you can leave out the sudo keyword from the commands listed below.

 

Start LicenseServer

To correctly register and license DiffDog Server with LicenseServer, LicenseServer must be running as a daemon on the network. Start LicenseServer as a daemon with the following command:

 

[< Debian 8]

sudo /etc/init.d/licenseserver start  

[≥ Debian 8]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

[< CentOS 7]

sudo initctl start licenseserver

[≥ CentOS 7]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

[< Ubuntu 15]

sudo initctl start licenseserver

[≥ Ubuntu 15]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

[RedHat]

sudo initctl start licenseserver  

 

If at any time you need to stop LicenseServer, replace start with stop in the above commands. For example:

sudo systemctl stop licenseserver

 

Start DiffDog Server

Start DiffDog Server as a daemon with the command appropriate for your system from those listed below.:

 

[< Debian 8]

[< CentOS 7]

sudo initctl start diffdogserver

sudo systemctl start diffdogserver

[< Ubuntu 15]

sudo initctl start diffdogserver

If at any time you need to stop DiffDog Server, replace start with stop in the above commands. For example:

sudo service servicename status
