Access to a Reprise License Manager (RLM) server is required when using Nitro.
The RLM Server can run multiple licenses. If your company already uses an RLM Server, you do not need to install a new one for Nitro. Skip this topic and follow the instructions in 2.6 Installing Nitro.
This topic contains instructions on how to install an RLM Server.
In this topic:
These instructions assume you are using the default ports. If your configuration will use other ports, then substitute your port numbers when opening the ports.
If your site is running firewall software on its hosts, you will need to configure the firewall to allow connections to the necessary ports.
|RLM Server Host||5053||RLM Server Port||Always|
|RLM Server Host||5054||RLM Web Interface Port||Always|
|RLM Server Host||5135||ISV adaptiveco Port (for the Adaptive license-enabled products)||Always|
See 2.22 Opening Ports in a Firewall for general instructions and an example of how to open ports in the firewall.
If your configuration uses firewalls, you must also open the necessary ports before installing Nitro. See 2.5.1 Open Necessary Ports.
On the host where the RLM Server will reside, do the following:
[root]# groupadd -r rlm [root]# useradd -r -g rlm -d /opt/rlm -c "A non-root user under which to run Reprise License Manager" rlm
[root]# mkdir -p -m 0744 /opt/rlm [root]# cd /opt/rlm [root]# tar -xzvf /tmp/ac-rlm-<version>.tar.gz --strip-components=1 [root]# chown -R rlm:rlm /opt/rlm
The --strip-components=1 removes the "ac-rlm-<version>/" from the relative path so that they are extracted into the current directory.
If you are using a user:group other than rlm:rlm or a location other than /opt/rlm, then edit the following files to reflect those changes after copying them.
[root]# cp init.d/rlm /etc/init.d
[root]# cp systemd/rlm.service /etc/systemd/system
[root]# chkconfig --add rlm [root]# chkconfig rlm on [root]# service rlm start
[root]# systemctl start rlm.service [root]# systemctl enable rlm.service
The RLM Web interface includes two usernames (admin and user) by default. These usernames have the default password "changeme!".
If you do not change this password, RLM, and Remote Visualization, will not be secure. For tips on choosing a good password, see https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/tips/ST04-002.
Do the following for both the user and the admin usernames:
