A group configuration can be defined for an Active Directory group of users.

Using group configurations can save time when setting up and maintaining a licensing system with many different users. If a group configuration connection info (.cci) file is loaded on a client computer, and users are added or removed from the Active Directory group, these changes take effect immediately on the client computer. For example, a user added to the Active Directory group can use licenses from that group configuration immediately.

Group configurations require the following:

  • Intergraph Smart Licensing Client is installed on a computer on the domain

  • The Intergraph Smart Licensing Client service is modified to run as a domain user to allow access to Active Directory

  • For an application implemented via IIS (Web Server) sites that supports group configurations, such as HxGN SDx, a valid domain must be entered in the ISLUserDomain setting in Server Manager. For more information, see Group CCI configurations for applications implemented via IIS (Web Server) sites.

Configure the Intergraph Smart Licensing Client service to run as a domain user

Before changing the log on account in this procedure:

  • Check in all licenses that were checked out for offline use on the computer. Otherwise, these licenses will be unusable until their expiration.

  • Ensure you record the information for all the previous configuration connection info (.cci) files configured on the computer. The previous cci files will be removed once this change is complete, because the service assigned to a new user does not have the same permission as the local service.

  1. Open the Control Panel, and double-click Administrative Tools.

  2. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click Services.

  3. Click Intergraph Smart Licensing Client, and select Properties from the shortcut menu.

  5. On the Log On tab, select This account, and type the domain user name.

  6. In the Password and Confirm password boxes, type the password for the domain user account, and click Apply.

  7. In the Service status section, click Start, and OK.
