Step 2 – Gathering Fingerprint Information

Now that the installation of the Sentinel RMS License Manager has been completed, you need to gather the fingerprint (Locking Code) and send this information to our licensing team at license@pcigeomatics.com

If you have a dongle plugged into the server machine simply go to Start > All Programs > PCI Geomatics > Server Administration > Info > Fingerprint. If the fingerprint information shows 0 - 0 please follow the instructions below.

image038.png

 

If you do not have a dongle or you are having trouble getting the fingerprint.txt file to display a fingerprint, you will need to use the wechoid.exe tool.

 

  1. Open exe (folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel RMS License Manager\WinNT.)
  2. Uncheck every box except for Disk ID and Ethernet Address. Your fingerprint should start with 0x14.
  3. If you have a dongle plugged in uncheck every box except for Computer ID. Your fingerprint should start with 0x80.
  4. The fingerprint will be at the bottom of the window.
  5. Capture a print screen (ALT + PrtScn) or copy down the locking code and send it to our licensing team at license@pcigeomatics.com

 

 image040.png

In addition be sure to send the following information with your email:

  • Customer Number
  • Customer Name
  • Company Name
  • Email address at which you want to receive the license file
  • Locking code
  • Platform of the computer where the license server resides
  • Geomatica version number

 

 

Step 3 – Applying the License File

After you have received a copy of the license file from PCI, please save a copy locally onto your desktop (Ex. C:\My Documents\PCI_License).  Now proceed to open the WlmAdmin panel (Start > All Programs> PCI Geomatics > Server Administration > Server Administrator).

image046.png

 

To apply the license file right-click on the computer name (where the license server resides) and select Add Feature  > From a File  > To a File and its Server.

Browse for the location of the previously saved license file, select it and click ‘Open’ to proceed.

image050.png

The license file will be applied into the license server and you will receive a message similar to the one displayed above.  The number of licenses applied may vary, depending on the amount of modules purchased, or being evaluated.  The Sentinel RMS License Manager is now installed, started and serving out licenses.

**If a reboot of the license server is detected by the license manager itself, the service will automatically restart and apply the license file, as long as you select ‘To a File and it’s Server’ in the above step.

The packages and version of your license key can be seen if you expand Subnet Servers.

For more information on purchasing additional packages please contact sales@pcigeomatics.com

 

Step 4 – Setting up Client Installations

With the Sentinel RMS License Manager installed, started and serving out licenses, you can now install full client installations.  Using the Geomatica install file you downloaded previously, please run the installation.

 

The Geomatica Installation Wizard starts.

Click ‘Next’ to proceed.

image052.png

 

The license agreement for Geomatica appears.  Please read through the agreement and select ‘I accept the terms in the license agreement’ and then click ‘Next’ to proceed.  By not agreeing to the terms and conditions the installation will immediately cancel.

image054.png

 

The Installation Location screen appears.  Choose a destination folder to install the software, and then click ‘Next’.

**Due to certain read/write permission issues under the Program Files on Windows machines, the default installation location is the C: drive.  We suggest keeping this default installation path in order to run Geomatica.

image056.png

 

For Client Installation, choose Client (server license) as the Installation Type, and click ‘Next’.

image058.png

 

The License Server Host panel appears.  Please type either the computer name (with domain), or the IP address of the machine where the license server resides.  After doing so please select ‘Next’ to proceed.

**If you have entered the computer name (or IP address) properly and an error occurs, it means that the license server might not be configured properly, or started.  You can set the licensing later so carry on with the installation and contact PCI support to troubleshoot.

The Python installation panel appears.  Please  ensure that the checkbox is toggled on, and select  ‘Next’ to proceed.

The installation is ready to begin.
