SPM Cloud Licensing Installation

In cases where it is not possible to run a local SPM license server migenius may make available a cloud licensing server which can be accessed remotely. The instructions below show you how to configure your system to find the server. You will need to replace {port} in the items below with your assigned dedicated licensing port which will be provided to you separately.

Windows

In your favorite editor (run elevated as Administrator) open the following file:

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\services

Append the following text to the end of the file to tell SPM which port to connect to for licenses:

mi-spm {port}/tcp # migenius SPM Licensing

Now in Computer | Advanced System Settings | Advanced | Environment Variables… set a System Environment Variable as follows:

SPM_HOST=licensing.migenius.com

These steps will let you use a special server we setup for serving your licenses. You should then be able to run RealityServer without requiring the local license server.

Linux

In your favorite editor (run as root) open the following file:

/etc/services

Append the following text to the end of the file to tell SPM which port to connect to for licenses:

mi-spm {port}/tcp # migenius SPM Licensing

Before running RealityServer you need to set your SPM_HOST environment variable. For example in bash you can use:

export SPM_HOST=licensing.migenius.com

Setting environment variables globally on start up varies by Linux distribution and shell you are using so please refer to your distributions documentation for details. These steps will let you use a special server we setup for serving your licenses. You should then be able to run RealityServer without requiring the local license server.
