FlexLM Target ID

Appendix A. Determining the Target ID


Most types of license key can only work on the specific piece of equipment for which the key was created: often

· a network adapter identified by its MAC address or a value calculated from its MAC address

· CPU, identified by a hardwired motherboard identifier.


Dassault Systèmes Key Management Centers refer to this identifier as the “Target ID”, regardless of the license key software used (FLEXlm, DSLS, BPA, etc.). See below for the actual terminology used by the license key software for each product.


In the standard procedure for requesting key, for most products, you are asked to provide the Target ID of the device on which the license key will be enrolled.


You will find hereafter some indications on how to get this targeted, according to the licensing management software or portfolio.
