Adding/Managing NVIDIA License Server

The NVIDIA License server can be automatically discovered by eG Enterprise. Therefore, administrators can either auto-discover the license server in their environment or manually add the license server.

To manage the NVIDIA License servers that are automatically discovered, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to the eG admin interface.
  2. If the component is yet to be discovered, then, run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discovery).
  3. To manage an already discovered component, follow the menu sequence: Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage/Delete.
  4. Figure 1 and Figure 2 clearly illustrate the process of managing a NVIDIA License server.

  5. Next, sign out of the eG administrative interface.

To add the license server manually to eG Enterprise, follow the steps below:

  1. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  2. Next, select NVIDIA License server from the Component type drop-down and then click the Add New Component button.
  3. When Figure 3 appears, provide the Host IP/Name of the NVIDIA License server that you want to manage.

  4. Then, provide a Nick name for the component.
  5. The Port number will be set as 7070 by default. If the license server is listening on a different port in your environment, then override this default setting.
  6. Pick an external agent from the External agents list box and click the Add button to add the component for monitoring.
  7. Next, signout of the eG administrative interface.
