Template:Serving two license versions
Handling licensing when using versions 8.x and 9.x
Versions 8.x and 9.x of Insight use two different license versions. However, it is possible to run both 8.x and 9.x simultaneously. There are three scenarios in which you would want to run both versions:
|If you want to...||Then...|
|Set up a separate projects_root to test the new version||Install Insight 9.6 in a new location and copy your new license file to the <projects_root>/licenses directory in the new installation. Run a License Server for each installation.|
|Upgrade your existing projects_root||Append the contents of your new license file to the 8.x license file. Run only the License Server from the 8.x installation. You can specify that version 9.6 should use the previous License Server in one of two ways:|
|Run separate production projects_roots for each version (for example, if one group is upgrading but another group needs to continue using version 8.x)||Install Insight 9.6 in a new location and copy your new license file to the <projects_root>/licenses directory in the new installation. Run a License Server for each installation.|
Note: If you will use your organization's FLEXlm license server rather than the license server packaged with Klocwork Insight, you must configure Insight and the FLEXlm license server to work together, and you must put your Klocwork license file in the right place. See Using your organization's FLEXlm server.
