Issue

Licenses for INVOICES modules are not released in a timely manner.

Solution

Adding the following Options file allows the administrator to control the amount of time that must lapse after the last "hearbeat" from the Invoices module before a license is returned to the license pool.

  1. In the C:\FlexLM directory, create a text file named EHLM.opt with a single entry: TIMEOUTALL 60
    1. The value of 60 instructs the service to release any licenses for which there has been no heartbeat for 60 seconds.
    2. The value of TIMEOUTALL can be adjusted according to a customer's needs.

Once the Options file is created, restart the license service via the LMTOOLS utility. The debug log will now contain an entry such as, (EHLM) Using options file: "C:\Flexlm\ehlm.opt."
