Install a New Node-Locked License (Unix/Linux/Solaris)

  1. DOWN­LOAD LS-DY­NA:. If you have pur­chased a node-locked li­cense for LS-DY­NA, then you should first down­load LS-DY­NA. Down­load the SMP archive for your sys­tem, e.g., ls971_­s_­R5_­1_­0_­amd64_­suse11.gz. Un­zip this archive
            gun­zip ls971_­s_­R5_­1_­0_­amd64_­suse11.gz
    
    Make sure that the ex­tract­ed file is ex­e­cutable
            chmod 0755 ls971_­s_­R5_­1_­0_­amd64_­suse11
    
  2. GEN­ER­ATE A LI­CENSE RE­QUEST:. Ex­e­cute the ex­tract­ed ex­e­cutable with the "in­fo" com­mand line op­tion
            ./­ls971_­s_­R5_­1_­0_­amd64_­suse11 in­fo
    
    LS-DY­NA should print a mes­sage in­di­cat­ing that it has cre­at­ed a file named "lstc.log" in your cur­rent work­ing di­rec­to­ry:
      You have just cre­at­ed in your cur­rent di­rec­to­ry the file:
    
                           lstc.log
    
    You must ed­it this file ac­cord­ing to the in­struc­tions print­ed by the LS-DY­NA pro­gram. Fol­low the in­struc­tions print­ed by LS-DY­NA in or­der to ob­tain a li­cense file from LSTC.
       Lines 1 to 4 are re­served for in­for­ma­tion about your com­pa­ny.
       Please ed­it the file and re­place the '++++' with the cor­rect
       in­for­ma­tion.  The first line should be re­placed with the
       name of your com­pa­ny.  For ex­am­ple:
    
        ABC Inc.
            EMAIL: me@abc.com
              FAX: 999-555-1234
        TELE­PHONE: 999-555-5678
    
       To ob­tain a li­cense file, email or fax the lstc.log file to:
    
         EMAIL:  key@lstc.com
           FAX:  925-449-2507
    
       Or con­tact your lo­cal dis­trib­u­tor.
    
  3. CON­FIG­URE LS-DY­NA TO FIND THE LI­CENSE FILE: We rec­om­mend that you place the new­ly-ob­tained LSTC_­FILE li­cense file in the same di­rec­to­ry where the LS-DY­NA ex­e­cutable is found.If LS-DY­NA can­not find the li­cense file so placed, or if you want to place the li­cense file in an­oth­er lo­ca­tion, then you must set an en­vi­ron­ment vari­able to in­form LS-DY­NA of the where­abouts of the LSTC_­FILE li­cense file:
        IF YOUR LO­GIN SHELL IS csh OR tc­sh
            setenv LSTC_­FILE '/­full_­dir_­path_­to_­LSTC_­FILE/­LSTC_­FILE'
    
        IF YOUR LO­GIN SHELL IS sh, bash, OR ksh
            LSTC_­FILE='/­full_­dir_­path_­to_­LSTC_­FILE/­LSTC_­FILE'
            ex­port LSTC_­FILE
    
  4. VER­I­FY YOUR SET­TINGS:If you must set the LSTC_­FILE en­vi­ro­ment vari­able, then add it to your shell start-up file (e.g., .cshrc, .tc­shrc, .bashrc, .pro­file, etc.) Af­ter do­ing so, make sure to ver­i­fy your set­ting us­ing the 'cat' com­mand:
        cat -al $LSTC_FILE
    
    If 'cat' can­not find $LSTC_FILE, then correct the setting of the LSTC_FILE environment variable. If 'cat' finds the file, but cannot read it, then correct the permissions on $LSTC_FILE.
