OpenLM for Autodesk software supports any platform based on Autodesk Autocad. It is designed to provide full functionality with any other Autodesk software, e.g. Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Architect, Autodesk Civil 3D, etc.

Broker System Requirements
OpenLM Broker is designed to run on any platform supported by the license server.
OpenLM Broker requires Java to run. Java 8 is supported, however Java 11 (JDK or JRE) is recommended.
.NET Framework 4.5.2 or higher is required to run the installer on Windows machines.
Memory: 4 GB of RAM (recommended 8GB)

OpenLM Directory Synchronization Service & Synchronization Agent System Requirements

 

Hardware:

  • Dual core CPU
  • 4 GB memory (Recommended – 8 GB)

 

Platform: Windows.

Dependencies: .NET Framework 4.5.2 or higher is required to run the installer.

DSS & DSA are self-contained .NET Core applications – no runtimes are required to run the actual software as all files and libraries come bundled with the default installers.

 

Supported directory services:

OpenLM DSS synchronizes with the following LDAP directory services:

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • NetIQ eDirectory
  • ApacheDS

 

Supported databases:

An embedded Firebird DB is provided as part of the OpenLM DSS installation. DSS can also be configured to use external databases. The following database types are supported:

  • MS SQL Server:
    Versions 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019 are tested and supported.
  • Firebird Server:
    Version v2.5.5 is tested and supported.
  • MySQL Server:
    MySQL v5.7 and 8 are supported.

 

Other considerations:

  • If you previously used the integrated LDAP solution that came with OpenLM Server v4.x and you did not experience performance issues or processing hang-ups, you can install DSS & DSA on the same machine as OpenLM Server.
  • For systems that anticipate a high load and huge amount of synchronization data (tens of thousands of users), it is possible to install DSS on a separate machine to offset the load off the OpenLM Server machine.
  • For systems where DSS & DSA will be deployed separately, it is recommended that DSA be placed on the same subnet as the directory service, as close as possible to the machine hosting it to reduce network latency.

 

The OpenLM Router is implemented as a Java application. As such it can run on any operating system that supports Java; e.g. Windows or Unix / Linux. The required Java version is 8.

The OpenLM Applications Manager should be installed on the same machine as the License Server (e.g. FLEXlm), adjacent the OpenLM Broker. It is implemented as a Java application, and as such it can run on any operating system that supports Java; e.g. Windows or Unix / Linux.

.NET Framework 4.5.2 or higher is required to run the installer on Windows machines.

We recommend consulting the optimal configuration guide for Applications Manager for a more in-depth answer as to system requirements.

 

 

OpenLM Reporting Hub System Requirements

The OpenLM Reporting Hub generally requires a Windows or Linux operating system, with the following minimal hardware requirements:

For small databases (under 100Gb):

  • RAM – 8GB
  • CPU – 2.1 Ghz+ Dual-Core
  • Storage – At least twice the size of your current OpenLM database, with room for growth.

For large databases (over 100Gb):

  • RAM – 16GB
  • CPU – 2.1 Ghz or higher Quad-Core
  • Storage – At least twice the size of your current OpenLM database, with room for growth.

 

Supported source database types:

  • Firebird (OpenLM embedded database)
  • SQL Server
  • MySQL

Supported destination database types:

  • PostgreSQL (Reporting Hub embedded database)
  • SQL Server
  • MySQL
