iTest: How to manage iTest floating license to force each users to choose license every time when they launch iTest.


Spirent iTest



·         When you open iTest at the very first time, the licensing configuration details will be asked and the details will be stored under the preferences file com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs located under /Configuration/.settings.

·         So, from the second time onwards iTest will use the same configuration settings.

·         If you want to choose licenses every time, every time you need to modify this preferences file by changinguseLicenseServer=true with useLicenseServer=false or we need to delete the file com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs 


·         We can create a batch file, which deletes the com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs file and starts the iTest. It will prompt you to choose licenses every time.

Batch file:


cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Spirent Communications\iTest 4.2\configuration\.settings

del com.fnfr.svt.configuration.licensing.flexlm.prefs


cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Spirent Communications\iTest 4.2
