Maintenance of the license server infrastructure

Due to a software upgrade the license servers have to be upgraded, too

Due to a new version of Mathematica, the operating system of the license servers must be upgraded, otherwise the new license service is not executable. Therefore, both license servers will be upgraded on two different days. During the maintenance, the corresponding products are without license servers. This can (depending on the product) lead to the fact that the associated software cannot be started in the maintenance window or running programs only work again after the end of the maintenance window and a manual intervention.

On Tuesday, June 1 from 7-11am, winlserver1 will be upgraded. The associated products are:

  • Ansys
  • Axes
  • Comsol
  • IDL
  • Intel
  • Mathematica
  • Maple
  • Matlab

On Tuesday June 15 from 7-11am, winlserver2 will be upgraded. The associated products are:

  • Autodesk
  • AcrGIS
  • Bricscad
  • Cadence (Pspice)
  • Citrix
  • National Instruments (Labview)
  • PTC
  • SPSS (IBM Statistics)
  • Origin
  • Solidworks

We hope to schedule the downtime shorter than the maintenance window, but unfortunately with license servers unforeseen problems cannot be ruled out, so we have scheduled the maintenance window with a margin of safety.
