KB - BASIS License Manager (BLM) 16 Installation Instructions

 

 

Do I need this standalone BASIS License Manager (BLM)?

If you currently have BBj installed that is Rev 12 or greater, your BLM is current enough to work correctly with Perpetual licensing and benefit from its failsafe capabilities.

 

If you are using an older standalone BLM you need to check to see what version it is, as you need at least version 11.10.1.0.  To check the version of your BLM, you can run the following command from the OS prompt in your BLM/BLMGR directory:

 

lmutil lmver basis

 

This will return something like the following:

 

lmutil - Copyright (c) 1989-2014 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.

FlexNet Licensing v11.13.0.0 build 157483 (ipv6) i86_n3 (lmgr.lib), Copyright (c) 1988-2014 Flexera Software LLC. All Rights Reserved.

 

If your version is not at least 11.10.1.0 then you do need to update your BLM using the stand alone BLM 16.

 

OPERATING SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS and DOWNLOAD links

Java (JRE) 1.7 or higher, listed in the table below. Download and Install the JRE.

 

The BLM 16 installer is Java based and needs at least a Java 1.7.0 JRE from Oracle to be installed.

 

You can download the latest Java for most platforms from the following site:

 

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

 

Once you have downloaded and installed Java you will want to make sure and use this Java for your BLM install.   If you have yet to download the new BLM you can do so at this link:

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

When presented with a self-extracting jar file, follow the instructions below.

 

=> If the Java file associations on your operating system are set to run an executable jar file, double-click or execute the downloaded jar file. The install proceeds automatically.

=> If your Java file associations differ and do not run the file automatically, execute the following so Java runs the file:

 

On Windows:

%JAVAHOME%\bin\java -jar <jar_file_name>

On UNIX:

${JAVAHOME}/bin/java -jar <jar_file_name>

Alternatively, extract the contents of the jar and execute the appropriate launcher. To extract the contents of the jar, execute the following:

 

On Windows:

%JAVAHOME%\bin\jar -xf <jar_file_name>

On UNIX:

${JAVAHOME}/bin/jar -xf <jar_file_name>

 

If your JAVAHOME$ environment variable is not  pointing to the current version of Java then you will want to use the full path to the Oracle Java as in:

 

  $/usr/java/jre1.8.0_71-b15_x64/bin/java -jar BLM1600_04-11-2016_1107.jar

 

During the installation process you will also register and install the license.  We suggest you use the "Register and Install the license automatically" option, as this will verify the self-healing properties of the new perpetual license, ensuring that the machine can get out to the internet and contact BASIS for its license, eliminating manual administration efforts and avoiding any reset fees.
