Re: About advanced server concurrent connection limit

check for multiple connections from the same user pc to the server - as there can be more than and that can lead to confusion (it does for me anyway). I don't know if the 50 user lic counts usernames or connections.

Hi,

AFAIK, it's the number of connections that count; and from experience, Advanced Server can get confused if a client suddenly disappears.

Do @sys$startup:pwrk$define_commands and then enter PWLIC to see the current license status.

Concurrent use licenses will be the default if you haven't started the license server in pwrk$config. If license server is started, then the per-seat licenses can get used up very quickly because of various multiple identities for the same user, PC replacements and upgrades. You can use ADMIN/LICENSE to clean things up.

Also, use ADMIN/CONFIG to insure that your Client Capacity is sufficient.

Re: About advanced server concurrent connection limit

Please provide the specific, exact error message you are seing. Also, please describe the situation that leads to the error. Thank you.

A 50 user license means that 50 PCs can connect to the server at the same time. Please be aware that in a cluster, if a PC connect to multiple nodes of the cluster, then that one PC will consume multiple licenses (one for each node of the cluster). And, if it connects to the cluster alias, that would be another license.

Also check PWRK$CONFIG. You might be underconfigured for number of sessions there as well. If you are only configured for 20 sessions, then, you won't be able to connect 500 users.

Re: About advanced server concurrent connection limit

Hi,
there is another feature about license.
If you have client based license model, every PC leases the its own license at boot time. You can use only 50 registered PC.
If you have server based model, you can have 50 concurrent PCs. The trouble is how license server counts for PCs. For my experience, server does not reckon exactly clients.

Re: About advanced server concurrent connection limit

If you use server based licenses and the number of possible clients exceeds the number of licenses, you may want to use the AUTODISCONNECT feature. Idle sessions are then disconnected after the specified timeout and the license is available for another client. If the client opens another file on a share, it is reconnected automatically (if a free license is available, of course).

$@sys$manager:pwrk$define_commands
$ regutl
REGUTL> sho par server autodisconnect
Section Name: server
Keyword Name: autodisconnect
Type: Integer
Current Data: 1

Note: if you want to use this feature, make sure that you have the latest ECO 4 installed. Former version had a bug, which leads to disconnection of client though they had open files.
