Configuring the SolidNetWork License Server for the File Vault

You can configure the server for the file vault after you install the SolidNetWork License Manager and activate the license on the server.

You need to configure the license server only once since all SOLIDWORKS PDM vaults on the SQL server use the same SNL server.
  1. Open the Administration tool by doing one of the following:
    • On Windows 7, click Start > All Programs > SOLIDWORKS PDM > Administration.
    • On Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 or later, from the Windows Start menu, click SOLIDWORKS PDM > Administration.
  2. Create a file vault or expand the existing file vault.
  3. Right-click the License node and select Open.
  4. On the Server List tab, click Add.
  5. Enter the SolidNetWork License Manager's address in the form: port@SNLServerName.
    The default port number is 25734. You can enter either the host name or IP address of SolidNetWork License server for SNLServerName. All clients must be able to connect to the server by IP address or host name.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the License Usage tab to ensure that SOLIDWORKS PDM licenses are available.
  8. Click OK.
