A detached license is a license for DIANA that is temporarily removed from a pool of licenses on a DIANA network license server and attached to a remote recipient machine. For example, a license may be detached from a license server and attached to a laptop to enable the user to use DIANA while working offline.

When a license is detached from the DIANA network license server, the license includes all licensed features of DIANA.

Detaching of licenses is currently only available for softlock (SL-AdminMode) based DIANA network licenses.

In order to detach a DIANA license the DIANA network license server and client system both need to be configured properly.

Configure the DIANA network license server

On the DIANA network license server go to Sentinel Admin Control Center http://localhost:1947/_int_/config_detach.html

This page will allow the license administrator to enable the use of detachable licenses, set the maximum duration a license can be detached by users, and limit the number of licenses that can be detached by users. If the DIANA network license server hosts licenses for several different products you can use the Per-Product Settings button to apply different settings for each product. Changed settings are indicated by red lines as shown in the screenshot below. When done configuring click Submit. The changes are saved and the red lines become white again.

Configure the DIANA client system

On the DIANA client system go to Sentinel Admin Control Center http://localhost:1947/_int_/config_detach.html. The same page a shown above.

This page will allow the user to enable the use of detachable licenses, and set the maximum duration a license can be detached by the user. The other settings are not relevant on the DIANA client system. Like on the server click Submit when done.

Now the system is set up. For administrators that need to configure many client systems: Have a look at C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Aladdin Shared\HASP\hasplm.ini. More information can be found on http://localhost:1947/_int_/ACC_help_config_basic.html.
