The Sentinel RMS License System – Understanding Full and Upgrade PAKs

Background There are two types of PAK (Product Activation Key): FULL - issued when you first purchase a program UPGRADE - issued for subsequent releases which required a new license. When an Upgrade PAK is activated a Warning message is always issued as shown in the picture below.  This Warning is no cause for concern and is normal operation for an Upgrade PAK.  You will recieve such PAKs for new versions when you have previously recieved your Full license and PAK for the version you purchased.  Just ensure this is the same PC/ Server that you activated your Full PAK on, then click Yes.

How do I Setup a Server License on a PC?

Background - License Types Server & Local Computer Locked (LCL) Unless you specify otherwise you will receive a Server License PAK (Product Activation Key) for your software purchase, as this is the default license type. You do not need to have a special dedicated server computer to use this license type - it can be used on just a single PC. There are no downsides to a Server license vs LCL; there is no additional cost, it is easy to set up, can still be used on a single PC and has the following advantages: Any Windows PC can act as a license server and can both host the server license

Why is there no option to Activate “This computer…” in the License Server Manager? Why is there no lock ID and/ or the Sentinel RMS License Manager Service cannot be Started?

Background The Tekla Structural License Service uses an underlying third party licensing system called Gemalto Sentinel RMS.  For a server license, this involves the Sentinel RMS License Manager application which you will find listed in the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features as shown below.  This is automatically installed by the Tekla Structural License Service, so there is no need to install it separately. As at June 2019 the current version of Sentinel RMS used by Tekla Structural Licensing is version 9.2.xx as shown below. The Sentinel RMS application runs a Windows Service

How do I move my license for Tedds and/ or Structural Designer?

Question I want to move my license to a new PC (Local License) or Server (Server License), how do I do this?  Is there a license transfer feature?

Does Tedds and Structural Designer server licensing work with Microsoft DirectAccess (MDA)?

Question I am connected to our network via Microsoft DirectAccess (MDA) and am trying to use a server license for Tedds/ Structural Designer, but I get a licensing error unable to contact license server.  Does Tedds and Structural Designer server licensing work with MDA? Answer No - Gemalto (formerly SafeNet) state that Sentinel RMS - the 3rd party licensing system used by the Tekla Structural License Service - is not compatible with Microsoft Direct Access. Therefore, when using a server license, Tedds, Structural Designer and legacy CSC products will not work over a DirectAccess connection
