Which licence source has priority in the MLM_License_File?

Asked by Fabian Gock on 8 Aug 2018
Latest activity Commented on by Fabian Gock on 8 Aug 2018
I work with both network license and individual license. network license are supposed to be used when I have connection to the license server and the individual license when I work offline.
I have the license file stored in the right directory and added it to the three, comma-seperated server addresses in the MLM_License_File. But now Matlab always starts using the individual license, even if I have a connection to the server.
Is there any priority list how the listed license sources are used? I added the license-file path at the end of the list.
Thanks in Advance! -Fabian

I would say the preference would be individual license first and then network license.
But anyway, you can set up the priority by understanding the "license file search path". Run this in MATLAB
web(fullfile(docroot, 'install/ug/understanding-license-files.html#bt_9le3'))

The following worked: Don't include the path of the license file in the MLM_License_File Variable. It's enough to just have it in the right directory as matlab will eventually search there for a license file if all other options fail.
