Running as a Windows Service
You will need to know the IP address of the machine in order to access the web server interface for the license manager and set it up to run as a Windows service. If you do not already know that, open a command prompt window and type
This will give you the IP address along with additional information.
If you do not already have RLM running, start it from a command prompt window. RLM must be running in order to access the web server interface and set up RLM as a Windows service.
Next, open a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.). Enter
(replace 126.96.36.199 with the actual IP address of your server)
This will bring up the RLM web server interface that will allow you to manage the license manager service. The web server interface is only available after RLM has been started as indicated above.
The RLM web server will look something like this:
On the left is a button that says Manage Windows Service. Click that button; you should now see something like this:
Select INSTALL service; adjust the paths if needed to reflect how you have your system set up. Click Apply to install rlm (the default name) as a Windows service. This will make rlm (or whatever you have named it) a service that can be started automatically, but it does not start the service yet; you should see a message like this:
Click Continue, then you can close the browser window.
Bring up the Windows Control Panel and select Administrative Tools -> Services.
Look for the service you just installed, rlm or the name you chose (the list can be alphabetized by name by clicking on the Name heading if needed) and select it.
You should now see an option on the left to Start the service. Look in the column Status; it should say Started, and under Startup Type it should say Automatic. If it does not, right mouse click the service and select Properties; you can change the startup type to Automatic on the General tab.
Now you should be able to exit out of everything, close the command prompt window where you had RLM running, and still start up GAUSS.
