    How to deal with Bootroom system?

    Are you familiar with Bootroom techonogy (BootRoom.jpg)? It is very popular in China and Malaysia. The system contains a server and connects with many client computers without hard disk via LAN. So how does Flexnet deal with this issue if using HostidDiskSernum as lc_hostid Parameter?

    Thanks,
    Phuong

    for diskless nodes how would lc_hostid with DISK_SER_NUM is supposed to work?

    Probably you mean about the diskless network, where we can either have a dedicated network storage or router storage , which means that each client doesn't have its own disk volume but shares (or not) a networked storage which boot through PXE.

    From my experiance, i havn't seen any notifications from Flexera about this. But i believe a carefully choosen licensing model should work with FNP and diskless environment.

    Howover the DISK_SER_NUM is used only in case to distinguish in between different clients, (becasue VSN are supposed to be unique). I am not sure how would using this particular attribute will help you. You might wanna try with either IP address or FQDN.
