In a previous post we outlined how to install ENVI on your OS X Mountain Lion. Now we configure the machine to use our concurrent licenses.
Open a command prompt and go to to the /etc folder:
Check if you already have a file
ls -al launchd.conf
If the file
launchd.conf does not exist, create it:
sudo touch launchd.conf
Open a text editor with root (Administrator) privileges:
sudo -b "/Applications/Textedit.app/Contents/MacOS/TextEdit"
Now open the file file
/etc/launchd.conf in the text editor. The file is still empty.
At the University of Manchester add this line (for other organizations replace 27012@alecto… with your license server name):
setenv IDL_LMGRD_LICENSE_FILE "firstname.lastname@example.org;email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org"
Save and close the file
Restart the computer.
At the University of Manchester: Connect to the VPN – you always have to be on the VPN to use ENVI.
