Locations for valid licenses

Syntax

--license pathList

Description

license specifies the address of the license servers or the path to the license files that a server instance uses. You can specify multiple license sources with this option.

If you do not specify a value for this property, the server searches for the license files in $MPS_INSTALL/licenses, where $MPS_INSTALL is the location in which MATLAB® Production Server™ is installed.

Parameters

pathList

Path to one or more license servers or license files. Separate multiple entries by the appropriate path separator for the platform. Use a colon (:) as the path separator for Linux® and semi-colon (;) as the path separator for Windows®.

Examples

  • For on-premises server instances created using the command line, update the server configuration property in the main_config server configuration file.

  • For on-premises server instances created using the dashboard and for server deployments in the cloud, use the dashboard and cloud dashboard, respectively, to update the server configuration property.
