Standard Licensing for All ERDAS Products
All Intergraph Geospatial Software 2009 and higher uses the ERDAS-Net license manager. ERDAS-Net is based upon FLEXnet Publisher 11.5 (certain ERDAS Desktop 2011 products were upgraded to FLEXnet 11.8) from Flexera Software, with the following benefits:
- A single license administration tool can manage licenses for all Intergraph Geospatial products.
- Easy to set up. Double-clicking a license file starts the floating license service which will run after a system reboot.
- End-users (e.g., laptops) can borrow floating desktop-software licenses and then run disconnected from the license server (borrowing must be enabled by the administrator of the license server).
- Windows XP Professional (32- and 64-bit)
- Windows Vista Enterprise (32- and 64-bit)
- Windows 7 (32- and 64-bit), starting with ERDAS-Net 2010
- Windows Server 2003 (32- and 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2008 (32- and 64-bit)
- Red Hat Enterprise 5.x (32-bit x86)
- CentOS 5.x (32-bit x86)
- Solaris 10 (32-bit SPARC), versions 2008.08 and 2009.02
ERDAS-Net Licensing FAQ
Q: Does ERDAS-Net licensing support virtual servers?
A: Geospatial licensing does not support system IDs from virtual machines. Geospatial licensing is based upon unique system identifiers, and virtual network adapters are not sufficiently unique. Intergraph Geospatial software may be installed onto a virtual machine, but it must use a floating license from an actual (non-virtual) license server. Running a license server on a virtual machine is not supported.
Q: Can I use a single floating license like a node-locked license?
A: Yes. ERDAS 2011 software now requires floating licenses. ERDAS-Net 2011 can be used to run a single-count floating license service in the same place where a node-locked license could be used before. Please see the procedure.
