This technote will describe the procedure for properly re-licensing a ProjectWise Server Component after it has been already licensed and gone into 4 hour evaluation mode.
An understanding of Microsoft Server 2000/2003/2008, navigating and launching Windows programs/services will be helpful in understanding this technote.
A local Administrator account on the server where the ProjectWise service is installed is required to be able to perform all of the following procedures.
The following two examples assume that ProjectWise Server Components are installed on the server machine and at one point in time were properly configured and fully licensed. For more information on installing and configuring a ProjectWise Server Component, please see the ProjectWise Implementation guide delivered with the ProjectWise server setups.
Check to see if the ProjectWise service is running in 4 hour evaluation mode
ProjectWise Server 2004: For this example we will be re-licensing a ProjectWise 2004 series server.
We are interested in the Bentley License Broker Service, the Bentley ProjectWise Application Server 2004 Edition and Bentley ProjectWise Authentication Server 2004 Edition. (Bentley Orchestration Shepherd does not require a license so there is no need to restart this service. Also note that the Authentication Server does not require a license but is dependent on the Application server, so it still needs to be restarted.)
ProjectWise Server XM/V8i/SELECTSeries1/SELECTSeries2 : For this example we will be relicensing a ProjectWise XM series server.
