FAQ: Can a 9.0 and 8.x License Manager be installed on the same machine?

Question

Can a 9.0 and 8.x License Manager be installed on the same machine?

Answer

Yes, the 9.0 and 8.x versions of the License Manager can be installed on the same machine.

Windows Users

A version 9.0 license file can be created using an existing hardware key number from a version 8.x or previous License Manager server. Once the version 9.0 license file is obtained, install the ArcGIS 9.0 License Manager on the same machine hosting the ArcGIS 8.x License Manager, making sure to use the same hardware key for both. Two hardware keys cannot be used on the same server.

UNIX Users

A version 9.0 license file can be created for an existing hostid and hostname if a user intends to administer both the version 9.0 and 8.x License Manager on the same machine. The version 9.0 and 8.x software must be installed to different directories and each sysgen directory should have only the proper version of the license file.
