Ansys License Utilities

Identifying Your License Serve

The Ansys license manager requires a unique identifier for the machine that is running the license server software. In order to generate a key, we need that unique identifier and your hostname. Ansys provides a program, AnsRegSrv, to gather that information.

PADT provides versions of this tool for Windows and Linux below along with instructions on how to use them.
