Altova DiffDog Server 2023 

This topic describes how to start Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and DiffDog Server. To be able to start these programs, you can use one of the following options: (i) you can be the root user and leave out the sudo keyword from the commands listed below (leaving out sudo is optional), or (ii) you can run the sudo command as a normal user with the corresponding permissions for sudo.

 

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], [≥ CentOS 7], [≥ Ubuntu 15]

sudo systemctl start licenseserver

 

If at any time you need to stop LicenseServer, replace start with stop in the command above. 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], [≥ Ubuntu 15]

sudo systemctl start diffdogserver

 

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

 

sudo systemctl stop diffdogserver

 

Check status of daemons

To check if a daemon is running, run the following command, replacing <servicename> with the name of the daemon you want to check:

 

sudo service <servicename> status
