What is the License Server

Stambia DI Designer refreshes its license token periodically, by querying the License Server using an https URL.

This License Server can be our stambia.org server, or it can be installed in your organization's network. This way, your Designer can check its license token even in case of communication failures with stambia.org (ISP failure, proxies, firewalls...).


The License Server is available for Stambia DI customers. Feel free to contact the Support Team if you want to know whether your company can install it.

Put simply, the License Server is a Java service, usually installed on a Production or Development server, so that all Designers can access it and validate their license token periodically.

Requirements

  • Any Windows or Linux server
  • Java 6, 7 or 8 installed
  • 100MB of RAM
  • 50MB free disk space
  • Network configuration so that the server can be joined on https://<your-server>:<your-port>/

Installation steps

The steps are quite simple:

  • Download the License Server
  • Unzip the archive file into the installation directory of your choice
  • Copy the "license.xml" file into this same installation directory.
  • On Linux systems, make sure the bin/*.sh scripts have execution permissions.

Installation is done.

Please make sure that it works well before installing it as a service:

  • Execute the bin/start.bat script (or start.sh on Linux)
  • The standard output should look like this:
    2016-03-30 10:18:21.242:INFO::jetty-7.3.1.v20110307
    2016-03-30 10:18:21.275:INFO::started o.e.j.s.ServletContextHandler{/,null}
    2016-03-30 10:18:21.487:INFO::Started SslSocketConnector@0.0.0.0:443
  • The log file "com.stambia.licence.server.log" should contain:
    2016-03-30 10:18:20,989 [INFO ] Loading server properties
    2016-03-30 10:18:21,106 [INFO ] Server properties are loaded
  • From the Designer, try to paste your License URL in the License Manager
    https://<server-hostname>:<server-port>/default

 

The "license.xml" file was delivered to you when purchasing Stambia. It contains your license data.
  • If you lost this file, please contact your Support Team.
  • If you never received this file (new Customer or first install of the License Server?), please send a request to the support team with:
    • The MAC address of the server which will host the License Server
    • The TCP/IP port (usually 42900 or 443) which will be open on the License Server for https requests

Installing the License Server as a service

On Windows:

  • execute the .\bin\serviceInstall.bat (as an administrator).
  • You will find the new Windows Service under the name "Stambia License Server"

On Linux:

  • make sure the ./bin/*.sh scripts are given the appropriate execution permissions
  • consult your linux's distribution documentation, for registering start.sh and stop.sh into the services
  • here is a sample script, please adapt it to your installation:
$ cat /etc/init.d/licenseManager.sh
#!/bin/sh

# Set this to your License Server install directory
STB_LICSRV_DIR="/opt/licenseServer"

start()
{
cd "$STB_LICSRV_DIR/bin"
nohup ./start.sh &
}
stop()
{
cd "$STB_LICSRV_DIR/bin"
./stop.sh
}

restart()
{
stop
sleep 3
start
}

case $1 in
