Standalone licensing

Standalone licensing enables you to operate an application without a Silk Meter server. The client reads the policy directly to determine if it is allowed to run, rather than connecting to a remote or local license server for authorization.

To support this type of licensing, policies must have the allow_standalone option set to true and the Silk Meter configuration file, silkmeter.cfg, must include the following line:

To switch to and from the standalone licensing mode, click ConfigurationConnection Settings in the menu and check the appropriate mode.

Note: Micro Focus recommends running remote-server and standalone Micro Focus applications on separate machines, because running remote-server and standalone applications on the same machine can lead to inconsistencies in the policies.dat file, when the file is changed.
