Floating License Server Help

Moving to another physical server

If the server where your FLS is running is outdated or doesn't have appropriate characteristics, you can move it to another physical server.

  1. Install a new copy of Floating License Server (FLS) to a new location.

  2. Stop both previous and new FLS versions.

  3. To move FLS software to another computer, move the following files:

    • Registration data from $HOME/.jb-license-server (or from another data directory, if you've changed it, see Configuring data directory).

    • Configuration data from ./conf directory which is located in the FLS installation directory.

  4. Delete the FLS installation directory from the previous location.

  5. Configure reverse proxy and automatic server discovery if required.

  6. Start FLS using the following command:

    ./bin/license-server.sh start
  1. Install a new copy of FLS to a new location.

  2. Stop both previous and new FLS versions.

  3. To move FLS software to another computer, move the following files:

    • Registration data from %userprofile%\.jb-license-server for user JetBrainsLS (or from another data directory, if you've changed it. See Configuring data directory) to the same location on a new computer.

    • Configuration data from %programData%\JetBrains\LicenseService\conf to the same location on a new computer.

  4. Make sure that service user JetBrainsLS has full access permissions on copied files on the target computer.

  5. Configure reverse proxy and automatic server discovery if required.

  6. Start FLS using the Services Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
