Extracting DSLS information using command lines

Table of contents

Scope #

During the development of OpenLM’s interface to Dassault Systemes’ proprietary license manager: DSLS, we needed to extract DSLS information using command lines.

The following is an account of the commands used in this process, and examples for commands’ output. The logs are typed in a manner that would fit this page, and are edited to be non-personalized.


Commands #

DSLicSrv -admin [-I inputFile] [-t OutputFile]

Employs the DSLS license administrator tool in command line mode.

  • Optionally redirect the output to OutputFile
  • Optionally run the license administrator commands from a command file.

The DSLS administrator tool was employed in command line mode. The admin> prompt appeared.
