Decide which workstations or networked PCs will run MATLAB, and how many user keys overall. Since these are "floating" network licenses you will be able to use MATLAB on any combination of systems up to the total number of keys.
|2.||Go to https://spars.jhu.edu/ - purchase the total number of keys you want for your group. If you just want to add hosts to an existing group without purchasing additional keys, see the section on How to Add Hosts to an Existing Group.|
|Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the list of workstation/PC hostnames to be added to the license servers. To prevent needless downtime for the license servers, we will only make changes twice a month. Related: How do I find my computer's hostname?|
In the meantime, you can proceed with the software installation or upgrade an existing installation. Note: you will need the appropriate JHU license.dat file for the installation or upgrade.
You may download 2009b at (ignore the FIK and license.dat file and use the ones listed below)
Even if you are just renewing a license, you may still want to install the other toolboxes covered by our License Agreement
!!!! NOTE !!!!
There's a bug in R2008a installations. When it installs, it only configures the network.lic for one license server (instead of our three). And this causes problems with the toolbox checkout (not matlab checkout) when our primary license server is not the one listed in the network.lic
Look at your MATLAB network.lic; it's just a text file
