You may see one or more Feature ID's depending on the products you have purchased. If you purchase 1 full license of FDTD Solutions, you will see the following products listed:
If you have purchased additional engine license(s), you may see duplicate Feature ID on this list. This behaviour is expected.
Note that a full FDTD Solutions license contains 1 FDTD Solutions - design environment and 1 FDTD Solutions - simulation engine.
There are 2 most likely reasons of why this could happen. The first one is that somebody else is using the software and you have reached the available quota limit. The second reason is that the previous simulation ended abruptly and the license was not correctly returned.
To troubleshoot this, please do the following:
1. Open your web browser and visit this link: http://localhost:1947/_int_/devices.html
2. Locate the key that you wish to inquire
3. If the key is plugged in to your local machine see (a) , if the key is plugged in to other machine see (b)
(a) Click Features on the right-side, under the Actions Tab.
(b) Click Net Features on the right-side, under the Actions Tab. Then click on any Browse button on the right-side under the Actions Tab.
4. Choose the Feature ID that you would like to enquire.
5. Click Sessions on the right-side, under the Actions Tab.
For FDTD or MODE design environment features: As long as the user open GUI/design environment on the same machine, it will take only 1 design environment license.
For FDTD or MODE simulation engine features: This means that the user is currently running more than 1 simulations at the same time and is using more than 1 license quotas.
Note: If there are multiple hardware keys in your network (from other users from a different group), you may want to use per-user or per-machine access control. Please see this page for further details: Access controls
